Alas, the NCAA basketball tournament is going to be a distraction upon the mid-semester. Even if our men's team loses within the first two rounds (containing the goings-on to spring break) just as school resumes the women's tournament will begin.

In my purely anecdotal experience, basketball players tend to be better students than football players. But NCAA basketball tournament games tend to take place on school nights (while football is restricted to weekends and vacations), meaning that basketball has a greater effect on the student body as a whole.

When I was in college, the only sport I enjoyed watching was ice hockey. Not a big draw around here.
