Your 2012 NCAA Tournament Bracket

Published on March 11, 2012 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Finally, the brackets are out.  Enough of trying to predict the field.  In my Bracketology I predicted 67 of the 68 teams in the NCAA tournament.  I also had 39 teams with the right seed, and had 21 teams +/- a seed.   Check out the bracket below. 

To no surprise Kentucky was the number 1 overall seed.  Also getting number 1 seeds where Syracuse North Carolina and Michigan State. Kentucky and Michigan State will be on the same side of the bracket.  The only team that made it that shocked me was Iona.  I thought Drexel should have been ahead of Iona, but that was my only beef.

Stay tuned to Roundballchat this week as I will breakdown the entire field of 68 teams.
