NCAA March Madness 2024

Welcome, basketball fans! It's that time of year again – March Madness is here! The annual NCAA college basketball tournaments are one of the most anticipated and widely viewed events in sports. 

March Madness isn't just for the men; it's also a thrilling showcase for women's basketball. Known as the NCAA Division I Basketball Tournament, it's a highlight in women's sports as well and has seen a rapidly increasing fanbase over the past 10 years. This event will take place alongside the men's tournament, with similar dates for each round. March Madness kicks off in mid-March, featuring 68 teams selected from approximately 350 Division I teams. 

Unsurprising given the general history of America, while the NCAA Division I basketball tournament has a long history dating back to 1939, it took until 1982 for women to be included...a reminder of the journey towards gender equality in sports. 

Sadly, throughout much of its existence, women's sports have often played second to men's sports in the eyes of the NCAA. However, there are positive signs of change on the horizon. As society increasingly recognizes the importance of gender equality, there's hope that women's sports will receive the recognition and support they deserve. 

Recently, the talk of the sporting world has been one of the most important and popular names in college sports. Caitlin Clark, the Iowa Hawkeye's star basketball player, became the NCAA Division I all-time leading scorer for men's and women’s basketball this month as her story has captivated sports and non-sports fans alike.  Caitlin Clark fever has transcended traditional fandom and evolved into something that the sports world very rarely sees.

With all of this Caitlin Clark buzz, we figured it was the perfect time to highlight some excellent films in the Multicom Entertainment library, Perfect Profile, Angel in Training, & The St. Tammany Miracle, all three of which are streaming on TheArchive

In the film Perfect Profile, we follow the story of Brad Johnson. He is a successful young manager who believes the key to his success is trusting in his computers' forecasts. He wants to use this method to improve his basketball team and computes the perfect profile. A long search finally locates a player who matches the profile: Terry Williams. However, there's one little surprise: she's a woman! Will Terry be the first female NBA player? This film features Nancy Lieberman as Terry Williams. 

Meanwhile, in Angel in Training, thirteen-year-old Desi has three big problems: her family home is up for sale, a sexy, money-hungry agent is duping her struggling cartoonist father, and she needs to find a date for a friend's birthday party. An apprentice angel is sent to Earth to help Desi deal with the situation and understand that it's okay to be herself. Angel in Training stars Laila Dagher and Gary Imhoff

Lastly, in The St. Tammany Miracle, starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar, a girl's Episcopalian High School basketball team fights to make a name for themselves through the help of their new female coach.

As we enter another year of March Madness, let's celebrate the excitement of men's and women's college basketball and continue to prioritize equality in the world of basketball.
