March Madness–the college basketball tournament tasked with crowing a new champion–begins tomorrow (the women’s tourney begins March 18), and judging by the hype, you’d think women weren’t interested.
Although women make up more than half of all people attending colleges and universities across our country, when it comes to sports, we’re often left out of the conversation.
As the daughter of a basketball coach, I grew up watching and playing the sport. My knowledge of stats, moves, and players often garnered me quizzical looks and props from men who thought I was only watching the games to scope out cute players. As if.
As the tourney begins tomorrow, I wanted to see if my experience and love for the game was indeed unique, or if you guys also felt the same way.
So Clutchettes, how many of you are filling out your brackets and preparing to watch the games unfold?
Do you care about March Madness? Who do you think will come out on top?
