Basketball’s March Madness – selection day
North Carolina takes top overall seed
North Carolina, Memphis, Kansas and UCLA earned the top seeds in the NCAA tournament Sunday, and the top-ranked Tar Heels got the best deal of all: Their road to the Final Four won’t veer more than two hours outside their Chapel Hill campus.
March Madness officially begins Tuesday with an opening-round game between Coppin State and Mount St. Mary’s, then with first-round games Thursday and Friday. The real festivities, however, have already started, with the brackets out, the pencils sharpened and office pools getting in full swing.
