Tournament Bracket Set For March Madness


March Madness officially begins tomorrow. The field for the tournament (which is a single elimination tournament featuring the best college basketball teams) was decided on Sunday with 68 teams competing in the men’s tournament and 64 in the women’s. 32 teams automatically got bids to the tournament based on their conference wins, and the rest were selected on Sunday. Team seeds were also announced. In the men’s bracket, Villanova, Kansas, Gonzaga, North Carolina, are ranked #1 in the East, Midwest, West and South respectively. The best way to embrace the tournament hype, which will dominate the next three weeks until the championship on April 3rd, is to fill in a bracket and enjoy the competition. Here’s a printable bracket. There’s always a “cinderella” team, so don’t just pick the highest ranked teams to win.
