2024 NCAA Tournament Bracketology

Bracketology is now in its 30th season on From now until Selection Sunday on March 17, we'll keep you up to date on the postseason chances and projection of your favorite teams. Our brackets update Tuesday during the nonconference schedule before shifting to twice a week -- Tuesday and Friday -- once conference play hits in earnest in January. We culminate with daily updates throughout Championship Week in March, all with an eye toward the 2024 NCAA men's basketball tournament.

Bracket Watch

This week's release of NET rankings by the NCAA gives us bracketologists a reset of the season's first month. But we shouldn't overreact to any metrics at this point. (For example, Princeton, as good as the Tigers have been, isn't going to finish eighth, and conversely, UCLA isn't going to finish 103rd.) The early NET numbers are akin to April batting averages in Major League Baseball: There can be wild swings the same way a light-hitting shortstop can take a .500 average to the plate. The new numbers also overshadow significant wins by the Big 12 versus the Big East in last week's interconference battle. Specifically, Kansas and Houston beating UConn and Xavier lifted both Big 12 teams to the top line in this bracket, while UConn and Marquette are now 2-seeds (and Xavier fell out of the field entirely).
