The 2018 March Madness NCAA Tournament Bracket Is Here

The 2018 March Madness NCAA Tournament Bracket Is Here

Where Kentucky will be playing its first games.

"We look at the entire body of work", said chairman Bruce Rasmussen. In their last appearance, in 2013, they were seeded No. 13 and were blown out by No. 4 seed Syracuse, 81-34. Had that shot missed, Louisville would have probably been in the NCAA Tournament. Cincinnati's about a four-hour drive from Nashville.

North Carolina opened last year's NCAA Tournament in Greenville, South Carolina, on the way to the national title and played its first two games in Raleigh in 2016.

Under the selection committee's new quadrant system, which doesn't weight recent results more than the games in the first few months of a season, ASU went 3-4 in quadrant 1 games.

Rick Barnes is heading back to where he spent a good chunk of his career.

The Kansas Jayhawks earned a number one seed in the Midwest Region and the right to stay close to home.

Bennett declined to say if he thought it was unfair for the committee to build a seemingly hard region around the No. 1 overall seed. Jay Wright will get his second national championship in three seasons.

"There's no team in this tournament that is more prepared than Auburn as far as everything we've gone through", Pearl said.

In the semifinals, Rhode Island edged St. Joseph's 90-87 to advance to their second straight A-10 Championship game. Watch out for St. Bonaventure, too. Kyron Cartwright (11.8 points, 5.7 assists) almost led the Friars to Big East tournament championship, having proved themselves with two victories over Xavier and another over Villanova.

Jeff Hendrick Praised For Helping Young Fans Amid Toxic West Ham Atmosphere
In a post match conference, Chris Wood said, "What was going through my mind?" Hopefully they wouldn't stop the game. Another supporter picked up a corner flag, ran to the centre circle and planted it into the London Stadium turf.

This is the most wonderful time of the year for college hoops fans [VIDEO]as we will soon have the answers to all of the questions buzzing around the tourney.

Hall of Fame coach Tom Izzo always says he hopes to "win the weekend" in the NCAA Tournament.

Izzo clearly knows how to win this time of year, though.

This also means that if the Bruins want to get back to the Sweet Sixteen, they will have to win three-consecutive games in one week. Maybe the biggest shock was Florida State garnering a No. 9 seed, when they'd been squarely on the bubble since losing in the ACC Tournament on Wednesday.

UNC is 33-1 in NCAA Tournament games in its home state, with the only loss in 1979.

Friday's matchup between No. 8 seed Creighton (21-11) and No. 9 seed Kansas State (22-11) in Charlotte will offer a reunion for Bluejays senior Marcus Foster with his former school. Davidson, also known as the Wildcats, has won eight of its last nine games.

"You have a sense of pride", junior center Jack Salt said of being the No. 1 seed. The No. 2 seed is Duke, with Michigan State at No. 3.

- Will all four No. 1 seeds lose before the Final Four? The top 16 seeds will host the first two rounds.
