The NCAA gets this one right.

The NCAA will add a fun bit of bracket ceremony after NCAA Tournament basketball games, according to the Twitter feed of David Worlock, NCAA director of media coordination/statistics.

A player will advance his or her team with a placard on a large bracket posted, likely, near the post-game media area.

The NCAA is borrowing the idea from the The Basketball Tournament.

Mike Waters of syracuse.com has more details.

Good stuff.

Athletes, fans, coaches will enjoy this and it will become one of the tournament’s most anticipated and replayed moments.
