March Madness Recap

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Bucknell chapter.

The name pretty much says it all: madness.  So many games, so many teams (some no one’s even heard of before…). Sweet 16, elite eight, final four. It’s certainly hard to keep track of it all, especially once your bracket is pretty much a wash, which happens to the best of us. Now we’re down to the final four. Here’s who’s playing who and some other important info on the teams playing this weekend.
