Watch NCAA Tournament Bracket

The brackets are ready to be filled in as college basketball's biggest tournament kicks off this week. Villanova poses for photographs with the tournament trophy after a championship NCAA college basketball game against Creighton in the finals of the Big East men's tournament Saturday, March 11, 2017, in NY.

Every year on Selection Sunday, the bracket for the NCAA Tournament is released.

UCLA, Villanova and Kansas have all had excellent seasons this year, and it would be surprising if they were not all assigned No. 1 seed placements for this year's bracket. Those games will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Traveling to Buffalo for the first two rounds, the Wildcats will play the victor of the play-in game between Mount St. Mary's (19-15) and New Orleans (20-11) Thursday at 7:10 p.m.

Watch out for these teams, because they could bust your bracket.

Wright was already prepared with some notes from his assistants on Villanova's potential first-round opponents.

"When you mis-seed somebody, it hurts the seeds above them", he said. It's no doubt that this team will earn the overall No. 1 seed. The Gators despite their two national championships in 2006 and 2007 also have a history of early exits and dropped three of four after winning nine straight.

"Our confidence is very high", Sterling Brown said. We won't think of the logistics that went into getting there. It's that underdog feeling that we can all connect with that makes March feel so special.




If second-seeded Duke beats No. 15 Troy and seventh-seeded South Carolina beats No. 10 Marquette, the Blue Devils would face the Gamecocks in the second round in Greenville, South Carolina. Too bad they won't be playing any games in Tallahassee. The Cylcones, who reached last year's Sweet 16, have won 10 of their past 12 games, including victories over Kansas and Baylor. So how does the selection committee go about making the final bracket, and what factors into how they pick the teams for the Big Dance? This is their first NCAA Tournament appearance in seven years.

The Bears started the season with 15 wins and 19 of 20. The Selection committee has largely done well in selecting the field in the last few years. The guy who finally gets it right can be smug, but you could have his money. After an up-and-down regular season, it looks like Blue Devils have figured it out. If the Wildcats make it out of their two games in Buffalo, they head a little south to New York's Madison Square Garden, where they just won the Big East Tournament. They have one of the easiest roads to a Final Four. "We're at the end of the season, so they're accustomed to that". They are motivated. They're exhausted.

As we wrote in February, Gonzaga is really, really, really good. While it's highly unlikely that anyone reading this article missed the reveal of the tournament bracket (if you did, here's the bracket in all its glory), you might have missed some of the moments in conference tournament play this past weekend that shaped the bracket we have before us.

Robinson is second in assists (2.9) and second in steals (66). The Bulldogs won a close matchup in the first round against No. 16 seed Southern, but were shocked in the round of 32 when No. 9 seed Wichita State won 76-70 on its way to the Final Four.

"We were the champions previous year".

Per ESPN, Villanova's 31 wins are the most by a reigning national champion. While Iowa State has a terrific backcourt, led by point guard Monte Morris, it can also be exploited inside by most teams and Nevada is equipped to take advantage. "As long as we stay focused, we'll be good".
