MADISON, Wis. (Mar. 27, 2015) –  Fiskars, the World’s #1 Scissors Brand™, has joined with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for the seventh consecutive year to be the official net-cutting scissors during the 2015 NCAA® Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships.

The iconic orange-handled scissors will be used by winning teams in the post game net-cutting ceremonies for the NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Regional Championship and Final Four games, as well the NCAA Division I, II and III Men’s and Women’s Championship games.
