How does NCAA March Madness work?
The NCAA Tournament is made up of 68 teams. The first 32 teams in the tournament are the 32 Conference Championship winners. The remaining 36 teams are chosen by the selection committee in what is called “at-large” bids. The 10-members committee uses various factors, such as record and strength of schedule to choose and seed the final 36 teams.
The NCAA Tournament is a single-elimination, knockout style tournament, meaning if you lose, you’re out, if you win you move on. The bracket is broken up into the following 4 regions: South, West, East, and Midwest. Each region has 16 teams that are seeded 1 through 16. The 1 seed is considered the best team in the region, while the 16 speed is the worst.
From the round of 64 through the championship game, there are a total of 63 games. If you include the “first four”, also known as the “play-in” games, there are a total of 67 games. Assuming the two teams playing in the championship game were not part of the first four, they would play a total of 6 games. The tournament takes place over the course of 3 1/2 weeks in late March and the first week of April.
