Apparently, the NCAA men's basketball tournament
had so much damn fun
here earlier this year that Portland's Rose Garden will again be getting first- and second-round games
On one level, it's a little disappointing that Portland couldn't move up the ranks from first- and second-round games to host Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight games. But considering the NCAA's return to Portland in 2009 was the first time the men's postseason games had been in Oregon since 1983, it's nice to know that it will only be a three-year wait this time around.
