While college basketball teams across the country have their eyes set on a national championship and while fans are anxiously awaiting the finalized brackets to fill out, Daktronics is busy preparing for the madness that is March basketball.
Next week, a flurry of games will be played as conference champions and at-large bids fight for the chance to move on in the tournament. On Thursday and Friday of next week, 32 games will be played in two days – 24 of those featuring Daktronics equipment.
