Get Ready for March Madness Bracketology

Basketball Mar 12, 2022

College Basketball Tournament Finals on Saturday / March Madness Selections Coming Sunday



Most college basketball conference tournaments will conclude today with their championship finals. These are mostly teaser games, since conference tourneys do little more than determining which teams advance beyond their respective regions and what 32 teams will receive automatic berths into the real basketball tournament -- and the weighty series most people really care about -- which is March Madness.

Then, on Sunday, we'll see and hear which teams have been selected, the brackets, and the seedings. This whole selection process has become a big thing on its own, known as "bracketology."

Here's the college basketball schedule with key dates over the next three weeks:

First Four: March 15-16 (8 in-play round teams cut down to 4, which becomes the final 64 teams)
