Total Pro Sports – Its that time of year. One of the greatest sporting events is about to begin. Millions of people will be rushing to their computers to see what the experts have to say before filling in their brackets. Which team will be the Cinderella story? There’s only one way to find out. Oh yeah. Lets not forget about the NBA or NHL. They are still going on too.
NCAA Mens Basketball Tournament Play-in Game: Morehead St. vs. Alabama State
Tuesday, March 17, 7:30pm ET
What better way to get things started than a good ole play-in game. Both teams have a lot riding on this game as they square off in the Midwest region to see who will have the pleasure of getting run over by Rick Pitino’s Louisville Cardinals. Should be a thriller.
NCAA Mens Basketball Tourney: 1st Round Coverage
Begins Thursday, March 19 at 12:20pm ET
The real deal finally begins Thursday just after noon with the Butler Bulldogs taking on the LSU Tigers. That is just the beginning of a long day that will see other great matchups, including the Maryland Terrapins vs the Golden Bears of California, and the Michigan Wolverines vs the Clemson Tigers. Friday also has its share of great games, like the Tennessee Volunteers vs the Oklahoma State Cowboys, and Wisconsin Badgers vs the Florida State Seminoles. Its bracketology time!!
NHL, Chicago Blackhawks vs New Jersey Devils
Tuesday, March 17, 7pm EST
Two teams that seem to be somewhat under the radar will face off against each other in a cross conference matchup that is very likely to provide a ton of excitement. With young guns like Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, and Zach Parise dancing all over their ice, there are good chances that some highlight real goals will pop up at some point. Just be sure to keep your eyes glued to the screen. They could come faster than expected, although im sure Martin Brodeur will have something to say about that.
NBA, Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics
Wednesday, March 18, 7pm ET
May as well get in one last NBA game before the NCAA Tourney begins on Thursday, and what better game than D Wade’s Heat against Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics. Two of the stronger teams in the east should provde a great farewell game to those who will forget the NBA exists until the college hoops season is over.
