Must-Follow Twitter Accounts for the NCAA Tournament Teams in 2016


Filling out the perfect bracket is one thing, knowing who to follow on Twitter for all of the March Madness events is another. From the crying to the dancing, you're not going to want to miss a minute of this tournament. 

Every team has an official account, but sometimes those aren't always the best source, especially if you're a fan of more entertaining tweets. I've got you covered from college basketball must-follows to team-specific ones. You can thank me later.

The Sweet 16 - These are the national accounts to follow for all the action. They should keep you informed and in some cases, even entertained.

@marchmadness: The official NCAA account. 

@MarchMadnessTV: You're going to need to know what channel TruTV is.

@SethDavisHoops: "Sharpie"

@JayBilas: Mr. College Hoops.

@franfrachilla: Not everyone in CBB is a quality follow, but you can't go wrong with Fran.

@RobDauster: Head college basketball guy at NBC Sports (and as of right now his Twitter avi is one of the cutest kids ever).

@BrianHamiltonSI: Sports Illustrated's college basketball guy, pretty straightforward.
