The Beginning of March Madness
The very first NCAA men's basketball tournament took place in 1939, with the University of Oregon defeating Ohio State University 46-33. Only 8 teams were invited to participate for the first 12 years. Today, we start with 68 teams in 4 divisions for this single-elimination tournament, whittling them down to the Sweet 16, then the Elite 8, followed by the Final 4, and then the final game to decide the National Championship.
In 1982, the first NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Tournament took place, starting with just 32 teams competing. 64 teams are now included in the initial round of games, and the structure is similar to the men's tournament. The women play their championship game the day after the men's title game, closing out the college basketball season.
The 2017 Tournament So Far
The Sweet 16 begins on Thursday and continues on Friday, with the Elite 8 winners being decided on Saturday and Sunday. We'll have all the games for you, and here is when they'll be taking place.
Double the Cheers!
We've got both kinds here at Wobbly Boots BBQ: the cheers you hear when a bunch of basketball fans get together to root their team on, and the kind you make with a drink from the best bar at the Lake of the Ozarks. With a fully stocked bar and 21 beers on tap, we've definitely got the drinks covered.
You don't have to sit at the bar to get a good view of the games when you're at the Boot. We have 21 TVs located all around the restaurant, including our giant projection screen. Bring the whole gang along with you, because we've got plenty of room for everyone.
Great Game Food
Our appetizer menu is filled with incredible plates full of deliciousness to chow down on while you watch your team. If you're here for all the games, you're going to want to order some dinner, too. A great big, juicy burger, our Prime Rib dinner, or the best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks is sure to keep your energy high and your appetite satisfied.
There's not a bad seat in the house when you watch the games at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse. Call up your friends, load your family of sports fans in the car, and all of you can join us for a weekend full of the most exciting college basketball of the year.
