We are less than 24 hours away from the beginning of the NCAA Tournament. For the first time in quite a while, the Magic will have their eyes very squarely on the college game for the next three weeks. For many fans, this will be their first look at the players at the top of the draft. You are forgiven if you do not watch Friday's game against the Thunder to watch college basketball (I will have coverage of that game anyway for you). You are also forgiven if you missed Tuesday's loss to the Pacers. I bet Dante Marchitelli missed a good chunk of it watching his Liberty Flames nearly pull off the upset of North Carolina A&T in the First Four's first game. {youtube}7DOelFugyAo{/youtube} With that in mind, we will have plenty of content on the NCAA Tournament in the coming weeks. For now though, let's prepare for the Tournament by having a little competition. I have set up an official Orlando Magic Daily group on ESPN.com's Tournament Challenge and I am challenging you to beat me (should be pretty easy to do). If the link does not work, go to ESPN.com and search "Orlando Magic Daily." The prize for winning the entire pool? If you win, I will give away a set of 1989-90 Orlando Magic trading cards, including the original Gooding's case they came in when they were given out 24 years ago. They should be in pretty condition (and if they are not, I will give out a replacement prize). So who do you think will win the Tournament? Will we see lots of Ben McLemore, Marcus Smart and Otto Porter? You get to decide and let the madness ensue during the next few weeks. Good luck!
