I’m so excited, because I love this time of year almost as much as I love football season.  Why?  The NCAA basketball tournament starts tonight!

Did your team make the field of 68 teams that are in the tourney?  If not, have you picked another team to cheer for?   Here’s the tournament bracket, if you still need to make a selection.

Last week’s post offered up some ideas on how to support your chosen team during the tournament, because let’s face it, most businesses don’t allow basketball jerseys or t-shirts in their dress code.

I started with the easiest options, like wearing your team colors in the form of a scarf, a lanyard, a pair of socks or jewelry from Team Colors By Carrie.

I then showed you some ideas for how to incorporate your team colors into your clothing choices, in the following team colors:

  • Red and White, my colors for the tourney, and worn by the Temple Owls, Austin Peay Governors and Wisconsin Badgers.
  • Navy Blue and Red, the team colors for the Arizona Wildcats, Farleigh Dickinson Knights, Gonzaga Zags and Dayton Flyers.
  • Black and Gold, which are really black and dark yellow, in the uniforms of the Wichita State Shockers, Iowa Hawkeyes and VCU Rams.
  • Black and Red, colors of choice for the Texas Tech Red Raiders, Utah Utes and Cincinnati Bearcats.


This week I’ve got some more wardrobe combinations to show you:

Let’s start with Navy Blue and Orange, seen on the court when the Virginia Cavaliers and Syracuse Orange are playing.


How about Maroon and Gold, on the backs of the Iona Gaels?  Could they be a Cinderalla team?


And then there’s Silver and Black for the Providence Friars


And finally Navy Blue and Gold, worn by the California Golden Bears, Pittsburgh Panthers and Notre Dame Fighting Irish.


If you liked this week’s wardrobe suggestions, you can find them (as well as last week’s pictures) on my Team Colors At Work Pinterest board.

You’ll also want to follow the blog, if you haven’t already done so, because I’ll be back next week with another installment of Team Colors at Work!   And we’ll get to see how many color combinations I have already covered for the teams that make it to the Sweet Sixteen.

How do you plan to support your favorite college basketball team during their NCAA basketball tournament run?

I’d love to hear from you!
