    The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament, also branded and known as NCAA March Madness, is a single-elimination tournament played each spring at the USA, now comprising 64 college basketball teams in the Division I level of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), to determine the national championship. The National Association of Basketball Coaches created in 1939 the championship, and has been the Notion of Ohio State coach Harold Olsen. [1] Played largely during March, it has become one of the most famous annual sporting events in the United States. [citation needed] The tournament teams include champions from 32 Division I conferences (that get automatic bids), and 36 teams that are awarded at-large berths. All these”at-large” teams are chosen by an NCAA selection committee, then announced in a nationally televised event on the Sunday preceding the”First Four” play-in games, currently held in Dayton, Ohio, and dubbed Selection Sunday. Even the 68 teams are broken up into four regions and coordinated to some single-elimination”bracket”, which pre-determines, when a team wins a game, which group it will face . Each team is”seeded”, or rated, within its area from 1 to 16. The tournament happens during the course of three weekends, in sites across the USA. Teams, seeded by position, undergo a single-game elimination bracket starting with a”first four” consisting of 8 low-seeded teams playing in 4 games to get a position in the initial round the Tuesday and Wednesday prior to the first round starts, a primary round comprising 64 teams playing in 32 games within the course of a week, the”Sweet Sixteen” and”Elite Eight” rounds another week and weekend, respectively, and — to the final weekend of the tournament — the”Final Four” round. The Final Four is usually played during the first weekend of April. These four groups, one from each area (East, South, Midwest, and West), compete in a preselected place for the national championship.
    The championship has been televised since 1969. [2] Currently, the matches are broadcast by CBS, TBS, TNT, and truTV under the trade-name NCAA March Madness. Since 2011, all games are available for seeing nationwide and internationally. As television coverage has grown, so also has the tournament’s popularity. Currently, millions of Americans fill out a bracket,[3] trying to properly predict the outcome of 63 games of the tournament (not including the First Four games).
