The 1-68 seed list and, for those using screen readers, a text-only version of the final bracket projection for 2023.
Alabama travels to Nashville knowing an SEC Tournament title might result in the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA bracket, but there’s plenty of seeding intrigue in the remainder of the bracket.
Houston is more than likely to find itself on the top seed line on Sunday evening, while Memphis has seen its position relative to the cut line gradually improve. The question for the rest of the country is whether the American grabs a third bid via a surprise auto bid winner.
Between Purdue at the top and Minnesota and Ohio State at the bottom, the conference race was a jumbled mess. That means what happens at the United Center over the rest of the week will play an outsized role in how the March Madness field eventually looks.
Usually, the Atlantic 10 Tournament gives bubble teams an extended case of heartburn. That won’t be the case in 2023, as early season struggles ensured the conference will send just one of its 15 teams to this edition of the NCAAs.
While Yale is the top seed for the fifth edition of Ivy Madness, No. 2 seed Princeton gets to host the festivities at Jadwin Gym.
The 1-68 seed list and, for those using screen readers, a text-only version of the Selection Sunday morning bracket.
This final version is only slightly different than this morning’s offering.
While UCLA and Arizona will be playing for a spot on the top seed line of the NCAA bracket, everyone else will just be trying to get in.
The event returns to Greensboro, North Carolina with only top-seeded Miami, second-seeded Virginia, and fourth-seeded Duke NCAA locks. Former lock NC State, former conference leaders Pitt and Clemson, and former preseason No. 1 UNC all need to make runs this week to ensure their places in the field of 68.
The Big East’s No. 1, 2, and 4 seeds all look like they’ll end up somewhere on the top four line of the NCAA bracket on Sunday. How high each finishes will depend in part on what happens at MSG this week.
Three or four? How many bids will the Mountain West pick up on Sunday? We’ll have a better idea after Saturday evening’s final in Las Vegas.
The final iteration of this event for Conference USA 3.0 could very well end with the league sending two teams to March Madness.
2023 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info
Last season, second-seeded Saint Peter’s claimed the title, then became America’s darlings thanks to a run to the Elite Eight as a 15 seed. While the Peacocks are unlikely to repeat, Iona, Rider, Siena, Quinnipiac, and the rest will look to repeat SPU’s success—starting in Atlantic City.
The MAC’s top eight head to Cleveland for an event that is known for unpredictability thanks to how closely matched the contenders typically are.
2023 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info
Howard has a great chance to make its first NCAA trip in over 30 years, while a first-ever trip for Maryland-Eastern Shore is also a possibility.
2023 Southwestern Athletic Conference Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info
Second-seeded Grambling State may never have a better chance to earn its first-ever NCAA bid. However, the SWAC’s traditional powers will stand in the Tigers’ way in Birmingham.
A trio of University of California campuses head up this season’s field, with Cal State Fullerton and Hawai’i capable of taking the title from them in Henderson, Nevada.
After one year with a stepladder bracket, the WAC returns to a traditional format this season—other than the way the field was seeded, that is.
Vermont won the conference title by three games over UMass Lowell, so naturally the perennial champs from Burlington are a heavy favorite yet again.
Can Colgate pull off the three-peat and secure a fourth straight bid (apologies for 2020, BU)?
This season, the Big Sky Tournament will be played earlier in Selection Week than in the past, which will give the conference improved exposure on actual television.
This year’s Southland Tournament has a new site and new schedule, which will see the final played three days earlier than in the recent past.
Once again, I made only slight changes to the previous bracket, but the days of early Selection Week stability are about to disappear.
The 1-68 seed list and, for those using screen readers, a text-only version of Wednesday’s bracket.
Seven? Eight? Nine? What happens in Kansas City this week will determine how many bids the country’s best top-to-bottom conference grabs on Selection Sunday.
Good luck trying to figure these teams out. Of these eight teams, only Utah State and Vanderbilt can save themselves from an anxious wait until Sunday at 6 Eastern.
