If you look through our wide variety of wood carved products, you’ll notice that we have many sports-themed pieces. This is no coincidence – here at Screamin’ Designs we are huge sports fans. In fact, we’re absolutely stoked about one of the biggest athletic events of the year that’s right around the corner – March Madness! There’s nothing quite like perusing over the NCAA March Madness bracketology form, trying to figure out who is going to get in, to who will advance.
If you’re not familiar with NCAA March Madness bracketology, let us break it down for you. The tournament contains 64 teams that are divided into four sections. The tournament narrows the playing field down to four teams, which go on to the Final Four and compete to take home the NCAA college basketball championship.
So, how exactly does a school get invited to take part in the tournament? There are five major conferences that send their top teams to the tournament every year, and several midmajor schools make it as well.
There tend to be a group of mainstays that make it to the tournament every year. These include schools such as Michigan State and UCLA. This year some of the favorites to win the tournament include Duke, whose freshman phenom Jahil Okafor is predicted to go first or second in the NBA draft next year. Kentucky has also become a perennial powerhouse under the leadership of John Calipari. This year’s team is one of Kentucky’s strongest teams in recent memory – not an easy feat to accomplish. In fact, they are undefeated at the moment!
As you can see, we are quite excited about our NCAA March Madness bracketology. For information about our unique sports-related carved items or the Hope for the Warriors campaign, contact us at Screamin’ Designs.
