Since 1939, the NCAA Tournament has created many memories for sports fans all across the country. Year in and year out, there are 68 Division One basketball teams selected to play in the tournament. 32 of the teams selected have an automatic bid into the tournament, meaning they won their conference championship. The other 36 teams in the tournament receive an at-large bid, meaning a committee picks remaining teams that did not win their conference championships to participate in the tournament. There are two games to kick off the tournament that are called play-in games which narrows the tournament down to 64 teams to play out in a bracket, ultimately leading to a National Champion.

Last year, the Boys’ Latin basketball team had a crushing defeat in overtime against John Carroll in the A Conference championship. This year, the Lakers are out for revenge and are well on their way to getting it with a 23-3 overall record and an 9-0 conference record.
