WalletHub has dropped some awesome info ahead of March Madness starting next Friday.
WalletHub ranked the greatest college basketball cities in America, and Durham came in at number one. The city is home to the Duke Blue Devils. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Lexington, East Lansing, Lawrence and Storrs rounded out the top five.

In a shocking turn of events, WalletHub ranked Madison 219! Yes, that’s a real ranking. I’m not making that up.
Ranking Madison outside of the top 10 for any list about basketball cities should result in prison sentences.
There’s no other place like it.
March Madness is in two weeks, and it’s time to remember when Wisconsin beat Kentucky in the Final Four.
When the clock hit zero, I stood on the bar, shotgunned every beer I was thrown and partied nonstop until morning.

WalletHub also revealed that beer sales increase 19% and wing sales increase 23% during the month of March. While I’m always happy to hear about some more beer being sold, I have to believe we can do better than 19% on beer and 23% on wings.
This is March Madness! Those are rookie numbers. Let’s crank up the beer and wing sales.
Despite the fact I’m seething with rage right now over Madison’s ranking, I love the fact we’re getting lists like this. It’s a reminder that March Madness is a week away. We’re in for an epic time. I can promise you that much!
