It’s that time of year again: when David slays Goliath and Cinderella gets fitted for the glass slipper. With a wide-open field and Villanova and Saint Joseph’s both representing Philadelphia in the field of 68, this tournament should provide plenty of ‘One Shining Moments’ and instant classics. Of course, nothing makes watching a game more interesting than having a little something at stake. With that in mind, here are the rules for the 2nd annual Philly Fast Break March Madness tournament.
