Committee Changes Bracketing Guidelines for NCAA Basketball Tournament

Thursday, August 01, 2013

The Division I Men’s Basketball Committee has altered the guidelines for placing teams in the bracket of the men’s basketball tournament. The change is based on feedback from NCAA schools, conferences and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), along with a desire to protect the integrity of the overall seed list. One of the changes addresses how soon teams from the same conference can play each other in the tournament, which will be based on the frequency with which they met during the regular season and postseason conference tournament.
