The NCAA men’s basketball tournament returned to its familiar form for this year’s edition of March Madness. Unlike last year, when all games were played in and around Indianapolis with limited crowds because of the coronavirus pandemic, college basketball’s premier event is spread across the country in 2022. The mascots, bands and cheerleaders are on hand, and arenas can be filled to capacity.
After a wild two weeks, the field of 68 teams has been pared to four teams. The Final Four and national championship game will be played at the Superdome in New Orleans. Kansas will take on Villanova in the first national semifinal on Saturday and bitter rivals Duke and North Carolina will play in the other semifinal that night. The winners will play for the title on Monday.
