Current Round of Play: The First Four and #1 Seeds

With the First Four being introduced in 2011, those eight lowest seeds will compete to see which four teams will play their way into the larger bracket. If they win, they will be seeded against this year’s top seeds who are awaiting the result: The top seeds in each region is #1 Tennessee, #1 Duke, #1 Gonzaga, and #1 seed. Here’s what you can expect:

From the completion of the First Four round, the tournament will play dozens of games throughout the next six rounds of play until one team no longer has an opponent.

Each round will see the amount of teams trimmed down from 64 to 32 to 16 (Sweet Sixteen) to 8 teams (Elite Eight) to 4 (Final Four) then to the final 2 before crowning that one champion team. Will it be the team strength of the #1 Tennessee Volunteers and how far will we see the power and effort of Zion Williamson propel Duke? Or any of the other 62 teams.

Here’s Four Updated and Current NCAA Brackets for 2019

Up until the yesterday, we turned up the production of our free and blank NCAA Men’s D1 basketball tournament bracket and coverage. Now we’ll turn our efforts to ensuring that you have the most current and updated bracket as the rounds progress. Here’s five of favorite completed and updated brackets for the First Four and Round of 64.

The following bracket from the Lewiston Sun-Journal is one of our favorites because the bracket of 68 is not quite landscape, not quite portrait. It’s not limited by the rectangle brackets we’re used to seeing, and it’s long enough to read well. We love the font and the just enough color to pop, it’s not quite our top bracket because the spacing is just a bit off. To download the image scroll down:

For the Lewison Sun Journal bracket jpeg image (that you can print). The New York Times created their own downloadable bracket again this year and no surprise it’s very much the look and feel of the Grey Lady, simple and clean with just blacks and whites. We like it for it’s simplicity in design, but not sure it hits all the right notes.

With a good balance of color, design, readability and spacing, we love this bracket created and published out by GamingToday.com that we found on Google Images. It not only provides the dates and times, the regions, the rounds, but enough space to write in the rest of the winners and losers all the way to the championship game on Monday, April 8th, 2019.

We loved it so much we created an image file and a printable updated PDF if you are so inclined to download and use our favorite, updated March Madness bracket to fill out. If those three don’t float your boat, don’t worry, we have other posts with different brackets you can choose from.

If you’re if love with your own handwriting and looking for a blank bracket, a printable one, an empty 64-team bracket schedule, or TV schedule for the tournament, feel free to click on any of those resources. They’re all free to download and print. If all else fails and you just want to use the official bracket from NCAA.com, go here. (though we think it’s too long in length and don’t like what it looks like). In any case, no judgement. Have a great March Madness, my friends.
