Philadelphia hosts March Madness

Philadelphia hosts March Madness

Once again, Philadelphia has been chosen as a host city for rounds 1 and 2 of the NCAA Division 1 Basketball Tournament, aka “March Madness.” This is a great opportunity to see teams from all over the country and be a part of history. For those of you who remember, one of the most famous shots in March Madness history took place on March 28, 1992 in Philadelphia. Christian Laettner made the impossible buzzer-beater to beat Kentucky in the Elite Eight. Grant Hill’s perfect pass went directly to Laettner, who then turned and swished the most epic shot in NCAA history. Now, more than 20 years, it remains The Moment that stands above all the rest.
