ATR: Welcome to Championship Week

March 7, 2009 Leave a comment

The second best week in NCAA hoops is here.  Championship Week.  A prelude to Selection Sunday, just a week away.   As discussions heat up, team position’s change, and final decisions are made, welcome to Around the Rim (ATR).  I’ll try to provide daily columns and insights until the Field of 65 is revealed.  Also, Bubble Banter and Bracketology projections will be updated more frequently – sometimes daily.  Thanks for a great first year at Bracketville !

Congratulations to the Big Red of Cornell, winners of the Ivy League and first team to officially reach the NCAA tournament.
