March Madness

March Madness is upon us, which means another opportunity for a Cinderella story.

As I’ve shared in my March Madness: Why We Root For The Underdog article, we have a tendency to root for teams that are at a disadvantage. In most cases, rooting for the underdog is unrewarding, however the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament seems to be an exception to the rule.

Each year a lower seeded team makes an improbable run in the tournament. The likes of George Mason, Butler, Wichita State, VCU, and FGCU have risen to prominence in recent years as a result of their unexpected runs in the tournament.

Can you predict which team(s) will be this years Cinderella story? Take our poll below!

As a therapist by day and a sports enthusiast by night, I welcome any opportunity to combine my two passions. Whether it’s incorporating play in therapy or writing sports related articles from a psychology perspective, I am pleased whenever my two worlds collide.

    How does that make you feeeeeel? Comment your thoughts.
