With March Madness upon us, I try to find interesting sources for my basketball fix. The New York Times has started up a blog called The Bracket, which allows their college basketball beat writers a chance to sound off on fun tidbits and gossip, some of the behind-the-scenes material that doesn't make it to the ink of the Grey Lady.

I particularly liked this post, written by the center of the Penn basketball team. He's averaging 9 points and 5 boards a game, and he's a Rhodes Scholar finalist. Historically, the Ivy League has provided a disproportionate share of great upset moments in the tournament, so I'm looking forward to seeing their first round matchup. ben
