A March Madness Lesson March Madness is a phenomenon that grips the national sports psyche from the second week of March through the first week of April. It is the moniker that is given to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Men's and Women's Basketball tournaments. These tournaments determine the national champions of college basketball and are a very popular American sports tradition. In that tradition, we offer these sports quotes (on page two) for this month’s lesson. To You Their Teacher: It’s up to YOU to answer four questions about this lesson: (1) Do you want to use it?
