March 19th is the official day that kicks off March Madness 2019. After last years amazing championship game that hosted #1 Villanova and #3 Michigan. Villanova topped off Michigan 79-62 off of Donte DiVincenzo’s 31 point game.
This year's March Madness tournament will hopefully bring a lot of attention and excitement like past years have. The whole talk of college hoops has been the young team of Duke. Freshman Zion Williamson is supposably the best college player in the country and is suppose to be the number one draft pick in next years NBA draft. Most say Williamson is the next Lebron James with his athleticism and many more talents. Others amazing players on that squad like Freshman RJ Barrett or Freshman Cam Reddish. This team is loaded and is looking to dominate March Madness.
But when you talk about Duke, you have to talk about the one team that is ranked higher than them. Tennessee Volunteers, a team that has a record of 22-1 right now and is on a 18 game win streak… most in school history. This is by far the best Tennessee team in history and look to win their first championship in school history.
There are plenty of other good teams to talk about that are shocking the college hoops world. Top teams like #6 ranked Michigan, #3 Gonzaga, #4 Virginia, #8 North Carolina and many more. Most of these teams have all won championships.
Another team that has truly shocked the world of basketball is #7 Nevada Wolfpack. Sitting at the number seven team in the country with a record of 23-1. Nevada is defending their Mountain West Conference championship title from last season. The absolutely turned the program around fast from the season of 2016 where they went 24-14.
There are plenty of good programs in the country that will all battle it out in March Madness to go chase a championship. Villanova will try to defend their title and try to go back to back. Only eight teams have ever went back to back from when March Madness started in 1939.
Hopefully we will be entertained with another year of March Madness, remember all the fun starts March 19th. Let's wait and find out to see if someone can shock the world.
