The students loved the idea of doing something with the NCAA and involving basketball. They thought they were doing a game activity instead of some stuff out of the book. The students could relate to the information involving basketball and loved the hands-on opportunity. - Chad Evan, Napoleon Public School, Napoleon, North Dakota 17. General Questions
