When were the NCAA March Madness Brackets Finalized?
If you happened to miss it this past Sunday, the 2017 NCAA Selection Sunday broadcast was held where all of the brackets, seeds, and matchups were announced. This was also the first year that the NCAA let the overall #1 seed (Villanova) choose when region they wanted to play in. Unsurprisingly, Villanova chose the region that minimizes travel from home.
Of note, is that if North Carolina had earned the #1 seed, they would have selected a region further from home with Memphis (which they ended up getting assigned to anyway).
