Learn How March Madness Bounced Into Des Moines in 2016

March brings the madness of one of the greatest collegiate sporting events – the NCAA basketball tournament – to sports fans across the nation. In 2016, March Madness bounced into Des Moines as the city hosted opening round games of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament for the first time.
