NCAA 2017 Championship Preview

March Madness is the elimination tournament that sorts out the contenders from the pretenders when it comes to College Basketball in the United States. It’s win or go home format makes every match a spectacular sight, as it progresses through each round until the “Final Four” is held, leaving just two survivors to contest the Championship, where future NBA stars will collide.

Every year sees something new, whether it’s a major upset of one of the top seeds by one of the teams outside the range of thirty-two, which happened last year when Virginia (1) was supplanted by Syracuse (10) for a trip to the final four, or a surprise win in the finals such as Villanova’s remarkable performance in taking down North Carolina last year‘s championship game.

Here in 2017, Villanova returns with the burden of high expectations as the number one overall ranked Men’s team, it’s 37th appearance in the tournament since inception. Villanova will be up against traditional powerhouses Kansas (#2) and North Carolina (#3), and you can be sure the Tar Heels will be extra motivated to see the Wild Cats once again, providing they don’t overlook the Gonzaga Bulldogs (#4), who suffered just one defeat on the season, a late February contest against the NIT bound BYU.
