I chose this subject because I am a big basketball fan and I followed the whole march madness tournament. Also, March Madness is a huge deal in America and Duke winning brought up many controversial topics with college basketball and education. It is interesting to me to see the reactions of others after the huge game. I think with Duke having many student athletes that will be done with college after one year to go to the NBA is not a very smart choice. Before going to the NBA, the college student should get an education that can support him if basketball does not work out. This relates to me because I play basketball and Duke is a college I consider applying to attend in 2016.
