The “First Four” may already be underway, but you can still fill out a bracket and enter pools for the 2023 men’s NCAA Tournament.
The first round officially kicks off with 16 games on Thursday, followed by another 16 games on Friday. This year’s No. 1 seeds, Alabama, Houston, Kansas and Purdue, are hoping to make it deep into the tournament, but the early rounds are the most ripe for upsets.
When it’s all said and done, two teams will meet at the NRG Stadium in Houston on April 3 for the national championship game. Will your bracket still be intact?
