NCAA Final Four
March Madness. The Big Dance. Sweet Sixteen. Elite Eight. The Final Four. No other event on the planet immediately conjures up images of drama, heartache and triumph like the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship. First held in 1939 with eight teams competing, the championship has grown through the years to feature 68 teams (32 conference champions and 36 at-large teams) all fighting for the right to be national champions.

From buzzer beaters to the bracket busters. From dynasties to the Cinderella teams. From cutting down the nets to hoisting the Wooden Championship Trophy. Year after year, the Final Four produces some of the most exciting and memorable events in collegiate sports, while featuring future stars of the NBA. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Bill Walton, Bill Russell and Michael Jordan are just a few NBA players who launched their professional careers after winning an NCAA Championship.
