March Madness Begins

Posted: Updated:

March Madness is upon us.

For places like Buffalo Wild Wings in Millcreek, it's one of the busiest times of the year.

"It brings a ton of people in," said Buffalo Wild Wings Owner Kornel Miksa.  "From Thursday morning on, it's pretty much game on for us, so it's great."

Over the next three weeks, 64 teams will compete for the NCAA Championship.  That's more than 200 hours of intense basketball competition.

"I think there's a lot of good teams in it," said basketball fan Jody Jannazzo.  "There's maybe a dozen teams that could win it."

If you filled out a bracket, you're not alone.  According to outplacement firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas, 50 million people are expected to participate in office pools.  For many, it's all about picking the "Final Four."

Fans we spoke with, gave their predictions.

"Michigan State, they're a big underdog...Arizona, Florida, and Louisville." said basketball fan Travis Buzzell. 

"My Final Four, I have Michigan State, Duke, then I have Florida, and I also have Wichita State." said Nick Curry.

Whether you filled out a bracket or not, March Madness is here, and it will stay until a team is crowned champion on April 7.
