NCAA March Madness 2013: Printable Bracket, Predictions, Full Schedule, Where to Watch
Virginia teams begin their run for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Championship.
The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament begins today. The Georgetown Hoyas are poised for a run that could get them farther into March Madness than they've been since at least 2007.
The Bleacher Report says a Georgetown run to the Final Four in Atlanta "doesn't seem unfathomable," but the site stops short of anointing the Hoyas champions. It predicts March Madness for the Hoyas will begin with a victory over Florida Gulf Coast in their opener Friday and continue with a dismantling of San Diego State before a loss to Florida.
