March Madness "Bark-ets"

Catie Grossane

Everybody knows that all the best sports teams are named after animals, and college basketball team names are no exception. In fact, this year’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament has 12 teams with dog or cat related nicknames. So the question remains—will the championship go to the Wildcats (Kentucky, Villanova, or Arizona)? Or, to the dogs (Gonzaga, Virginia, or Butler)?
