Ok. It’s here. Championship week, finishing up with Selection Sunday.  Now that the regular season is over, here’s our first look at what we think the NCAA tournament brackets will look like when they are announced.

We will tweak this throughout the week as the conference tournaments produce upsets. We have already seen some regular season champions such as Belmont and Monmouth get bounced out of 1-bid leagues, which is too bad.

The final update will be made  on Sunday afternoon, just before the brackets are released.
