More March Madness (in April)!
Tonight, Connecticut takes on Butler to determine the 2011 NCAA men's college basketball champion. To mark the occasion, we have a guest post from Scholastic Kid Reporter Jack Keyes! Here's the question he wrote for you:
Last year, the NCAA tournament was almost expanded to a whopping 128 teams! That would mean almost double the March Madness that we have this year! With all the upsets and buzzer beaters from this year's tournament, many coaches are on board with the expansion. However, this surely would mean quite a few more games. So, how many games would it take to narrow down 128 teams to just 2 final teams?
