2022 NCAA Tournament Bracketology

After the most unusual NCAA tournament in history, a return to the version of March Madness fans have known and loved is back on the schedule for 2021-22. A standard selection process, a multiple-city event, and the return of fans, bands and cheerleaders are among the elements college basketball worshippers will welcome back in March. ESPN will have you covered up through Selection Sunday with the most recent men's NCAA tournament bracket projections, including the teams on the bubble and those best positioned to cut down the nets in New Orleans on April 4.

Bracket Watch

While Gonzaga separates at the very top of the bracket, Duke has captured the fourth No. 1 seed in timely fashion. To hold it, of course, the Blue Devils will have to knock off the Zags in their Las Vegas showdown. Kansas and Purdue, meanwhile, are fairly solid leaders of the South and Midwest regions. At the bubble, Feast Week has generated all kinds of movement. Wisconsin, Utah State and Washington State are new at-large selections, with St. John's, Syracuse and Notre Dame among those dropping out.
