2023 NCAA Tournament Bracketology

Will the Kansas Jayhawks become the first repeat champions in men's college basketball since Florida in 2006 and 2007? That's among the questions to consider during the 2022-23 season as Division I's 360-plus teams are now marching to the 2023 NCAA tournament -- a journey that will end at Houston's NRG Stadium for the Final Four on April 1 and 3. ESPN will be there every step of the way with its 2023 bracket projections, evaluating the current state of the bubble and identifying the top seeds for the game's showcase event.

Bracket Watch

With Houston back to normal after its win at UCF, it appears three of four No. 1 seeds are stable. That leaves at least four teams -- Tennessee, UCLA, Arizona and the Big 12 leader(s) du jour -- fighting for the final spot on the top line. In this update, after an unsightly come-from-ahead loss at USC, UCLA misses its best chance to move up and Tennesee remains on the top line. The Vols and Alabama both enter Saturday's Big 12/SEC Challenge as No. 1 seeds. Number of times the SEC has put two top seeds into the actual field? That would be zero (seeding began in 1979). Don't like the look? Just wait for the inevitable bracket maneuvering to follow the last significant nonconference games of the season.
