March Madness Tournament Starts Thursday, UCI Men & Women Headed for NIT Tournament


The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Postseason March Madness Tournament tips off on March 16th with the top 68 teams making the popular tournament. Viewers can watch all of the action on CBS, TBS, and TNT. If you don’t have access to those channels, you can watch a lot of the tournament games on their websites for free.

Games start Thursday (March 16th) morning and will continue through the Final Four weekend April 1st. 

March Madness has an extremely popular Bracket Challenge where fans can make predictions on who will win each game all the way up to the Championship game. To participate in ESPN’s free Bracket Challenge, go here

Both of UCI’s Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams just narrowly missed out on making the March Madness Tournament. Instead, they will be participating in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) Postseason Basketball Tournament which started on March 15/16. 

The UCI Men’s team fell to top seed Oregon in the first round.

The UCI Women’s team defeated San Diego State in the first round and then fell to University of San Diego in the second round.
