March Madness’ popularity has only grown over the past years, with an average of 11.9 million viewers in 2017. But let us look back at some of the champions from the past few years. Last year North Carolina took home the title after beating Gonzaga 71-65. In 2016, Villanova pulled out the victory against North Carolina, beating them 77-74 on a 3 point buzzer beater.
Though these teams were highly favored, there have been some big upsets over the years, making people believe that anything can happen, when it comes to the March Madness Tournament. So when filling out your bracket remember to include some upsets and to not always pick the better seed.
