March Madness History  

March Madness is right around the corner again.  And since the genesis of this yearly spring event in 1939, March Madness has always guaranteed to be an excitement filled bonanza of basketball games for college basketball betting fans everywhere.

BetUS has always been a consistent follower of all your game details, match information and history.  And as we approach this yearly spring event it’s good to take a look back at how the madness all started and where it all began. 

March Madness started in Illinois all the way back in 1908 as a small, invitation only, annual high school event.  By 1939, it had become a statewide establishment where over 900 schools actively competed in front of avid masses of college basketball supporters of epic proportions.

Now some 70 years later March Madness has fully evolved into one of the greatest and most anticipated sporting phenomena in the world, closely comparable to Super Bowl and World Cup events. 

This 70th March Madness tournament will occur on Tuesday March 16 to Monday April 5, 2010.  The tournament matches happen across twelve US states during this time and culminates into a final battle.

The final contention between the two best college basketball teams will come to a head with the Men’s Final Four Championship Game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN.  So make sure you are ready for one of the premier sports betting events of the year!
