Get your favorite college's basketball gear prepped and ready because the annual NCAA Division 1 basketball tournament dubbed "March Madness" will be coming back to Portland's Rose Garden. The arena will host the second and third rounds on March 19 and 21, 2015. This will be the third time in the past seven years that the tournament will be played in Portland. The tournament selection committee must have a liking to our great Pacific Northwest area or perhaps its the fantastic beer they seem to come back for. Whatever the reason, it will be an exciting time for college basketball. Hopefully, we'll even get some Pac-12 teams in the tournament.
In the meantime, keep watching the ducks and beavers this basketball season. There both on hot starts and will hopefully both be in contention for the Pac-12 title and "March Madness" tournament by the end of the season.
