During the tournament, fans who get involved with bracket challenges say every game matters.

However, sports enthusiasts do have their favorites, and one UK fan was happy to be at Overtime Sports Bar when his team won Sunday afternoon.

"The craziness, the craziness of the NCAA -- it's the best time of the year for a sports fans, the best time," said Ezra Bartley, a University of Kentucky fan. "Just being around other Kentucky fans. Just to be able to celebrate, hopefully with a victory, and luckily it worked out."

He was there with a friend who's a Louisville fan, and they're both looking forward to watching the teams play each other later in the week.

As for the bracket, he's doing just fine.

However, the majority of people WBKO spoke with said their brackets aren't turning out quite how they had hoped.
