Sixty-five were invited to the dance. One will come out on top.

Louisville, Pittsburgh, Connecticut and North Carolina (wooHOO!) captured #1 seeds in 2009. Alabama State and Morehead State, both #16 seeds, received the honor of opening the Tournament with the play-in game on Tuesday, March 17th at 7:30pm EST. Regular tournament games begin Thursday, March 19th at 12:15pm EST. I’ve read in several places that the first day of regular NCAA tournament play holds the record for the highest number of employee absences during the US work year.
