Since the beginning of the season in November, college basketball has been a source of entertainment for all those that watch. However, as March finally rolls around, basketball fans everywhere are filled with excitement toward a long-anticipated event to end the season: March Madness.

“My ringtone, if you call my phone, is “March Madness” [by Future] because it is March Madness season. I’m so excited, I’ve actually made three brackets so far,” Paul Centanni (12) said.

Many viewers fill out tournament brackets with predictions on how they believe teams will progress throughout the tournament.

“I like the competitiveness of filling out brackets and just being able to compare brackets with everybody. It’s cool seeing how well your bracket did or how bad it may have been. You can never be 100 percent certain on what’s going to happen. Every year there’s some sort of upset that happens in March Madness,” Eric Blankenship (11) said.

Lake Central Publications will be holding a March Madness Challenge in which students or teachers can fill out a bracket for the chance to win an NCAA 2016 tournament T-shirt. Participants can print the bracket here and tweet their completed bracket to @LCHSnews, or bring it into Room 9115 before Thursday, March 17.
