The NCAA’s Basketball Tournament of Champions: Basketball tournament with a bang
This is a team sport, but it’s also an exciting and emotional event that has become a hallmark of college basketball.
The tournament has attracted national and international attention since its inception in 1986.
The game is also an opportunity for fans to share in the excitement of the tournament as it unfolds in front of them on their television.
The last time a college basketball tournament played at the Staples Center was in 2005 when the NCAA Basketball Championship was held there.
The NBA announced the tournament in 2014, and this year, it was the largest college basketball event in the country.
But, there’s a catch.
No one knows who will be the first team to make the NCAA Tournament final.
The field for the final round will be announced this week, with all the matchups scheduled for the first two days of the NCAA tournament.

The first round starts on Feb 2 with a first-round game between Virginia and Georgia Tech.
