The Beginning…

On March 17th, 1939 the first games of the first NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament were played. Only 8 teams participated with Oregon capturing the national title after defeating Ohio State 46-33. That would be Oregon’s only national championship and trip to the Final Four in the school’s history (so far). Ohio State returned to the the Championship Game four more times but only winning it once in 1960. In less than two weeks 68 teams will compete for the national title. In recent years fans have spent endless hours mulling over their bracket picks. The endless hours will continue, but now a new method for madness has arrived. I’d like you to meet my good friend, Bracket Bingo.
