There was no NCAA basketball tournament in 2020. Total bummer.

So now we are all hoping that there will be a tournament this coming spring in some form or fashion. And while many are looking for ways to keep players safe in a bubble, the ACC is now advocating for every NCAA Division I team to participate in March Madness.

For those of you keeping score at home, that is 346 teams.

C’mon...seriously?
