Who Earned the Top Seeds in the 2017 March Madness Bracket?
The final seeds were determined on the CBS Selection Sunday broadcast when it aired on Sunday, March 12th. The #1 seeds in the 2017 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament are going to come down to a small number of teams. Heading into conference tournament play, Kansas looked to likely be the overall #1 seed, and they were closely followed by Villanova, Gonzaga, and North Carolina. Although UCLA is ranked high as well, they may find themselves pushed to a #2 seed in the tournament. Well, look no more, here are the top seeds:
- North Carolina
Other teams that were battling it out for high seeds included Kentucky, Arizona, Oregon, and Louisville. Duke has dropped a fair bit over the last few weeks of the season; however, the Blue Devils should still come out with a decent overall seeding depending on how the Selection Committee sets up the rest of the field.

SI (Sports Illustrated) is a very well-established sports website out there that offers a free, printable bracket for college basketball fans to use to help follow the game action.
Over the years; however, the usability of their site is a bit more challenging when compared to some of the other sites we have covered, but this could simply be from not being as familiar with their layout as we are with destinations like ESPN, Yahoo, and the NCAA.com.
