Shemon & Sheppard – In The Afternoon

On March 12, NCAA President Mark Emmert made the decision to cancel the Division I men's and women's basketball tournaments. The Big Ten, SEC, Big East, ACC, Western Atlantic Conference, Atlantic-10, Conference USA, Big 12, PAC-12, The Sun Belt, The Big Sky, The Southland, The America East, and The Big West canceled their tournaments as well.

It’s time for the mayhem in March to begin. The field of 68 is set. (It should still be 64 teams. I’m old school and hate play-in games.). So today, and for several days moving forward we will have a lot of college basketball trivia during Wiki-Pete-ia on the Shemon and Sheppard Show on ESPN Southwest Florida.

The annual college basketball tournament is tricky to predict. Since it is single-elimination and spread over three weeks, a great team can go cold and a team that isn’t great can get hot. Anything can happen and it usually does. Some desperate teams will fight their way forward and surely, at least one top seed will fall! That means you: Alabama, Purdue, Houston, and Kansas.

So fill out your brackets and get ready for an adrenaline filled month. It’s also time for college basketball trivia on the Shemon and Sheppard Show. We try to stump Pete every weekday at 4:45ish with Wiki-Pete-ia. Be caller number nine at 239-337-3776 or 239-337-ESPN and play Wiki for prizes. If you are not lucky enough to be caller number nine then feel free to play at work or at home against your family and friends. Below are the questions and answers to today’s contest. Good luck!
