2016 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship
All winter long, college basketball teams around the country grind it out just for the chance to compete for the national title in April. This year, NCAA March Madness comes to Raleigh, as the First and Second Rounds of the 2016 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship unfold at PNC Arena. When the final buzzer sounds at the end of the weekend, the tournament’s field of 68 will have been whittled down to just 16 teams. Though seeds and matchups won’t be finalized until March 13, it’s safe to assume the slate will be packed with heart-pumping moments and improbable upsets. In fact, four of the past five tournament semifinals have included at least one team seeded between 7th and 11th.
