[1] Played mostly during March, it has turned into one of the most well-known annual sporting events in the USA. [citation ] The tournament teams include winners out of 32 Division I conferences (which get automatic bids), and 36 teams that are awarded at-large berths. These”at-large” teams have been picked by an NCAA selection committee, then announced in a nationally televised event on the Sunday preceding the”First Four” play-in games, currently held in Dayton, Ohio, and dubbed Choice Sunday. The 68 teams are divided into four regions and organized into a single-elimination”bracket”, which pre-determines, when a team wins a match, which group it will face next. Each group is”seeded”, or rated, within its area from 1 to 16. The championship occurs in sites across the United States, during the course of three weekends. Teams, seeded by position, proceed through a single-game elimination bracket starting with a”first four” comprising 8 low-seeded teams playing in 4 matches for a position in the initial round the Tuesday and Wednesday prior to the first round starts, a primary round comprising 64 teams playing 32 games within the span of a week, the”Sweet Sixteen” and”Elite Eight” rounds the next week and weekend, respectively, and — for the last weekend of the tournament — that the”Final Four” round. The Final Four is played during the first weekend of April. These four groups, one from every region (East, South, Midwest, and West), compete in a preselected location for the national championship.
