Madness in March!

by

With the buzz from the Super Bowl dying down, sports fanatics are already looking for their next reason to party.  Good thing March Madness is right around the corner!!!  With Selection Sunday just 19 days away, there’s just enough time to plan the perfect party.  Throw your party on Selection Sunday to root for your favorite college or wait until April 3rd to watch the final four showdown which will be held in Indianapolis this year. Who are you rooting for?

Here are some tips to make your party a Slam-Dunk:

Decorations: Orange and Black are good neutral colors for a basketball themed party, or be a supportive fan and go with your favorite teams colors!  We’re divided between many teams: ASU, San Diego State, USC. it’s a hard choice!!

Dress: Wear anything from a ref tee and whistle to a jersey from your favorite team.  Our staff has dressed as referees at past parties to keep the guests in line!

 Trivia: Tests your guests’ knowledge of NCAA with some basketball trivia. (Did you know UCLA has won the most championships with 11 victories?)

 Need some help finding trivia? This website has tons of quizzes and answers. http://www.funtrivia.com/quizzes/sports/ncaa_basketball/ncaa_march_madness.html

 Party Games:  Before the game starts, might as well put a little money down with a betting board to raise the party stakes!  If you have a basketball hoop, challenge your guests to a game outside in between quarters. Or if exercise isn’t your thing, play some basketball themed video games like EA’s NCAA March Madness to give your fingers a work out instead.

 Food: Finger Food! Try this recipe your guests can dunk into. Serve with pretzels.  We’re already getting hungry just looking at this!!
