The month of March has often been documented to enter like a lion and go out like a lamb but for some people the month has different recognition: March Madness.

People from all over the country fill out the 68-team NCAA men's basketball tournament bracket. The brackets are graded on a point scale, with the most points being awarded for choosing the winner correctly.

Every March, a number of Kirkwood Community College students also take part in filling out brackets. James Kepford, Education emphasis, said, "This year I am going to use the strategy of picking the teams that are playing well late in the season and dismissing what happened earlier in the year."

Brandon Warren, Production Management emphasis student said, "I plan for a few upset picks every year, there always seem to be a few surprises in the tournament."

Brackets come out on March 17 and the tournament begins March 19.
