Which teams will Seahawks players root for during March Madness?

Posted Mar 18, 2015

Several Seahawks have collegiate ties to this year's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.

The 2015 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament tips off on Thursday, March 18, and with it comes three weeks of madness featuring 64 universities vying for a spot in the Final Four that's set to take place next month in Indianapolis, Ind.

If your own alma-mater didn't make this year's big dance, perhaps you'll find solace in backing the rooting interest of one of your favorite Seahawks.

Browsing our current roster, which admittedly includes a few names that are currently free agents, there are 24 different players who will have a team - or in quarterback Russell Wilson's case, teams, plural - to cheer on as the single-elimination action gets underway.
