The madness is here.
But, while basketball teams take to the court, the Secretary of Education is looking at their grades.
Arne Duncan says, college basketball teams who don't graduate at least 40% of their players should be banned from the NCAA tournament.
His comments are in response to a report showing the nations top college basketball teams rank in the bottom when it comes to graduation rates.
For example, No. 1 seed Kentucky only graduates 31% of its basketball players, and Maryland only graduates about 8%.
Topping the list, Vanderbilt and Notre Dame, who have some of the higher graduation rates.
