NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament

The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament, also known and branded as NCAA March Madness, is a single-elimination tournament played each spring at the USA, now comprising 64 college basketball teams in the Division I level of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), to determine the national championship. The tournament was the Notion of Ohio State coach Harold Olsen, also Was Made in 1939 by the National Association of Basketball Coaches. [1] Played mostly during March, it has turned into one of the most famous annual sporting events in the USA. [citation ]
The championship teams comprise champions from 32 Division I conferences (that get automatic bids), and 36 teams that are awarded at-large berths. These”at-large” teams are picked by an NCAA selection committee, then announced in a nationally televised event on the Sunday preceding the”First Four” play-in matches, now held in Dayton, Ohio, and dubbed Choice Sunday. The 68 teams are divided into four areas and coordinated to some single-elimination”bracket”, which pre-determines, when a team wins a game, which group it will face next. Each group is”seeded”, or ranked, within its area from 1 to 16. The championship happens during the course of three weekends. Teams, seeded by rank, proceed through a single-game removal bracket beginning with a”first four” comprising 8 low-seeded teams playing 4 matches to get a position in the first round the Tuesday and Wednesday prior to the first round starts, a primary round comprising 64 teams playing in 32 games over the course of a week, the”Sweet Sixteen” and”Elite Eight” rounds the next weekend and week, respectively, and — to the final weekend of the championship — that the”Final Four” round. The Final Four is played during the weekend of April. These four teams, one from every region (East, South, Midwest, and West), compete at a preselected location for the national championship.
The championship has been at least partially televised since 1969. [2] Currently, the games are broadcast by CBS, TBS, TNT, and truTV beneath the trade-name NCAA March Madness. Since 2011, all games are available for viewing and globally. As television coverage has increased, so also has the popularity of the tournament. At present, millions of Americans fill out a bracket,[3] attempting to properly predict the results of 63 matches of the tournament (not including the First Four games).
