Nuts and Bolts

The bracket holds 32 automatic bids for conference champions (noted with their conference next to their name), and the remaining 36 are at-large selections. I am evaluating teams on how they have performed to this point in the season without projecting how they will perform in remaining games.

As of now, conference champions have been determined using KenPom projections. Once conference tournaments begin, I will go by the highest remaining seed in each conference.

In today’s bracket, Kansas is the No. 1 overall seed in the Midwest, followed by Baylor in the South, Gonzaga in the West, and Dayton in the East. The Final Four matchups would be Kansas vs. Dayton, and Baylor vs. Gonzaga.
