  3. According to Vegas oddsmakers, the favorite teams to win the national championship are Duke, Kansas and North Carolina.
  4. The NCAA women’s bracket is out and UConn (University of Connecticut) is looking to win their fifth straight championship.
  5. The tournament is prime time for sponsors with over 11.3 million viewers last year. Although Nike still rules the court when it comes to team sponsorships.
