NCAA Tournament Official (and Maybe Unofficial) Merchandise Arrives
While gearing up for the 2016 NCAA Basketball Tournament, fans can get their hands on official merchandise celebrating the "Big Dance."
Heavy.com showcased some of the noteworthy tournament-related merchandise, including T-shirts, sweatshirts and more.
The bracket hasn't been finalized yet, but fans can sport this T-shirt showing all 64 teams that made it to the prestigious tournament. (We recommend printing brackets out if you're going to fill them out, though.)
For those who just want to celebrate the overall action, there's this "Jumpball" long-sleeved T-shirt.
While this seems like a great time to cash in on the basketball action with products, distributors should be careful. We reported that certain phrases, like "March Madness" and "Sweet Sixteen," are registered trademarks.
When purchasing NCAA tournament merchandise, fans also need to be on the lookout for counterfeit items.
According to WGME, the Better Business Bureau provided some tips to avoid scams or fake items, such as buying directly from the team/league's websites or vendors in the stadium.
If it's anything like the Super Bowl was this year, fans should be on the lookout for plenty of phonies.
