March Madness 2020

We’re serious college basketball fans at our house. Even when we’re traveling we take every opportunity to watch a game in the hotel, listen on the car radio or catch up online.

My husband often cheers for the underdogs. It can be fun. For him, anyway.

A big upset occurred March 16, 2018 when the University of Maryland, Baltimore County UMBC (relatively unknown on the Big Dance stage) beat University of Virginia. It was the first time in history that a #16 seed beat a #1 seed in the NCAA, Division 1, men’s basketball.

Sports can provide an excellent opportunity for character development.

About twenty years ago the #16 seed Harvard women, beat the #1 seed Stanford women in the NCAA women’s competition.
