Brampton March Madness fans will have someone local to root for when the annual NCAA Basketball Tournament begins later this week.

Brampton native Jahvon Blair and his No. 12 seed Georgetown Hoyas (13-12) will look to upset the No. 5 Colorado Buffaloes (22-8) in their first-round East Region game, Saturday, at 12:15 p.m.

The six-foot-four, 190 lbs. senior guard, who attended St. Edmund Campion High School in Brampton, averaged 15.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists for the Hoyas this season.

The 68-team tournament, which was cancelled last season because of the pandemic, officially kicks off Thursday with two First four- play-in games.

The championship game is scheduled for April 5. 

The entire tournament this year will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana and surrounding areas.
