Today started March Madness, the advent of the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament, and I was lucky enough to get to go to the first round of games. Right now, I am writing this from the Wofford vs. Arkansas game in Jacksonville. (Wofford, the 12 seed, is currently winning by two.)
One of the best moments of today was when I got to see Georgia State (14 seed) upset the Baylor Bears (3 seed) in the first game of the day (for me). After that, I saw Xavier (a family member’s alma mater) win, and a close game by Harvard against North Carolina. They were so close, but in the end, Harvard couldn’t pull it off.
I am also ecstatic because my team, the Ohio State Buckeyes, got the win today even though it was questionable for a while.
I’ve gone through waves today of being excited and being tired, but overall, it’s been a pretty fun day.
Here’s to more basketball madness, and Go Bucks!
