 Entertainment Picks

March Madness

A total of 68 teams will enter the 2017 tournament, with all 32 conferences tournament winners receiving an automatic bid. The Ivy League, which previously granted its automatic tournament bid to its regular season champion, will host a postseason tournament to determine a conference champion. In previous years, had the Ivy League had two schools tied for first in the standings, a one-game playoff (or series as was the case in the 2002 season) determined the automatic bid. On March 10, 2016, the Ivy League's council of presidents approved a four-team tournament where the top four teams in the regular season would play on March 11 and 12 at Philadelphia's Palestra.

The remaining 36 teams will receive "at-large" bids, which are extended by the NCAA Selection Committee. On January 24, 2016, the NCAA announced that the Selection Committee would, for the first time, unveil in-season rankings of the top four teams in each division on February 11, 2017. This has already occured.

Eight teams—the four lowest-seeded automatic qualifiers and the four lowest-seeded at-large teams—will play in the First Four (the successor to what had been known as "play-in games" through the 2010 tournament). The winners of these games advance to the main draw of the tournament.

It was in 2011 on the initiative of musical director, guitarist, and singer Damian Darlington created Brit Floyd. Darligton did this because he believed he could, "simply because he felt he could do it one better" than his previous band, The Australian Pink Floyd Show, and stating that "there is much more attention to details in every aspect of the show, from the music to the visuals to the lighting: everything is that much more perfected and there's a passion coming off that stage... It's a coherent, emotional journey through Pink Floyd's catalog." Read more at Weekend Saturdays click here
