About This Quiz

The game of basketball has roots that go all the way back to 1891 when P.E. teacher James Naismith invented the game to keep his students in shape over the winter. The game became popular in the Northeast and soon colleges began forming teams to compete with other colleges in the area. 

In a few years, the game of basketball exploded in popularity and in March of 1922 we saw the first National Intercollegiate Basketball Tournament. It has been madness in March ever since. The college game would produce legendary coaches and players including UCLA coach John Wooden who coached his Bruins to 10 national Championships in the 60's and 70's.

Today we have 347 division I college basketball programs in the country. These teams each vie for a coveted spot in the national tournament each year. The field was expanded recently from 64 teams to 68 teams all competing for a national championship. The teams play single elimination until a final champion is crowned. It is an elite honor for teams to make it into the tournament every year and a boost to programs and school exposure to make it into the Final Four. Drive to the hoop on this quiz and we will try and guess your favorite college basketball team!
