It’s been a wild few days, and with the final six conference championships taking place earlier today, I’ve been making changes to my bracket up until the final minutes before the committee reveals the 68-team field. Teams in blue are conference champions, and teams in orange will be participants in play-in games. Here is my final bracket.
Illinois St, Syracuse, California, and Illinois finish as the first four teams out. The ACC leads the way with nine bids into the tournament. Here are the final totals for each conference.
I’ve made my final selections. Let’s see what the committee thinks. My analysis of the field will come later tonight.
