DELIVERING THE GOODS: AD WEEK's Anthony Crupi reported new research from Kantar Media shows the NCAA Tournament is the "second biggest postseason sports showcase for advertisers" behind only the NFL Playoffs.

The Lakers-Celtics NBA Finals generated $417.7M in ad sales, while the Giants-Rangers World Series drew $345.3M (ADWEEK.com, 3/1).
