A GLAM SLAM’S JERSEY MADNESS
“March Madness” has truly lived up to it’s name, based on the first two rounds of tournament play. There were gimme games that turned into major upsets, unforgettable buzzer-beaters and memorable overtime wins. #1 seeded Kansas lost to #9 seeded Northern Iowa, Notre Dame and Georgetown were ousted in Round 1 and Michigan State defeated Maryland with a shot at the buzzer.
And based on the results thus far, there’s a 99 percent chance that your bracket is a total mess. We’ve only completed Round 2 and NCAA fans have resorted to ripping, shredding and burning their brackets, as they are forced to pay up on lost bets.
Now that we’ve reached the Sweet 16, A Glam Slam has developed a new bracket, one that’s not based on the gametime winners and losers. Since the road to the Final Four is sure to be full of more surprises on the court, A Glam Slam wants its readers to choose a winner based on their uniform instead.
Below you’ll find the Sweet 16 NCAA matchups, represented by their unis. Vote for your favorites and they will move on to the Elite 8, Final Four and eventually to the championship. Will A Glam Slam’s Jersey Madness winner match the actual NCAA men’s basketball champion?
