Every week, our co-founder and publisher, Craig Amick, will release his regional projections. These projections are a snap-shot of what the bracket might look like if it were released today based on the criteria that the NCAA Tournament Committee uses to build the field of 64 in June. These projections are not a prediction of what the bracket will look like in June, so every week we will get closer and closer to the final picture.
As we get closer to the end of the season, this projection will come at the beginning of the weeks, and multiple times in the final week.
The national seeds have a number next to them in parenthesis and the projected super regional matchups are side-by-side. Projected conference champions are in italics.
This week, we’ll post projections Monday, Friday and Sunday before the hosts are released.
Please post any questions or comments below or send a tweet to Craig at @craigamick_co.
