March Madness Bracket 2020

March Madness Bracket 2020

Since the NCAA has canceled the tournament I decided to make a bracket based on my power rankings. For the conference tournaments that had already been completed the champion got the auto-bid. For the conferences that canceled there tournament the 1 seed was given the auto bid. The remaining at large picks were the highest-ranked teams in my power rankings. Each team was then assigned a rank within the tournament based on the final power rankings below.

Bracket 2020

The 2020 Teams

The final four teams in the tournament were Memphis, Notre Dame, Indiana and North Carolina. If you haven’t realized by now my bracket looks very different then most. If you have been following my rankings this season you have figured out how they work and why they are like that. A few big standouts are San Diego State as an 8 seed and North Carolina was the last team in the tournament. If you are looking for a tournament that is more like what the real one check out Joe Lunardi’s and Bracket Matrix. Unfortunately, this marks the end of the power rankings for the season. They will be back and better than ever come November.
