There are a number of fun storylines here, including:
- Which school is more likely to make you a CEO?
- Will we see our old friend Mark Turgeon in the second round?
- Will the Harvard players return from Orlando in time to complete their graduate thesis on Tolstoy’s finest works?
- Will your family’s uncomfortable Thanksgiving political conversation drive you into the waiting arms of college basketball?
These questions, and more, will be answered soon.
The opening game will tip-off on Thanksgiving around noon CT on the family of ESPN Networks, with the semifinal (or loser’s semifinal) against either Maryland or Temple the following day.
The third and final game will be played on Sunday, December 1st, against either Davidson, Fairfield, Marquette or USC.
