March Madness is a month-long, holiday that celebrates the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship. Since 1984, when Bob Walsh from the Seattle Organizing Committee coined it, March Madness is the most well known college basketball term and sporting event in the U.S. The first game of the month also coincides with every guy (and many girls) in America buying team gear to outfit their man caves with team décor. After all, everyone needs a decked-out room dedicated to cheering on their favorite NCAA team. The top three teams to keep an eye this March are the Wichita State Shockers, Florida Gators and Kansas Jayhawks.
As the only team in college basketball to win 30 without a loss in the regular season, the Wichita State Shockers should be a prominent part of your March Madness space. Watch the games on your big screen while seated comfortable in Wichita State Shockers Deluxe Chair ($34.95, Sports Authority) while sipping your beverage of choice from a Tervis® Wichita State Shockers Colossal Wrap Tumbler ($15.99-$19.99, Bed, Bath & Beyond).
Currently at the No. 1 spot, Florida had some close calls recently, but is still a team to keep a close eye on. When the boys come over to tailgate and enjoy the games, you’ll be in need of bottle openers to kick off the party. Be true to your team and invest in a couple of Arthur Court Designs University of Florida Gators Bottle Opener ($22, Bed, Bath & Beyond). Display your love of the Gators with pride in your man cave with this decorative chrome clock (24.95).
With center Joel Embiid back in the game, the Jayhawks deserve this top tier slot. The perfect combo of blue and red, the University of Kansas UltraSoft Oversize Throw Blanket ($44.95, Overstock.com) will be exactly what you need when trying to impress the girl next door. Canoodle on the couch in this snuggler and all your dreams may just come true – the winning team and the girl!
March Madness provides the perfect opportunity to finally deck out your man cave in your favorite teams’ gear.
