The official bracket for the 2022 NCAA tournament will be released on Sunday, March 13 during the Selection Sunday Show. The brackets determined by the selection committee will be announced there.
There are 32 teams that automatically qualify for the tournament by winning their respective conference tournament, and the other 36 teams in the 68-team field will receive open applications, which will be decided by the selection committee.
The bracket will be unveiled in full Sunday night as The Selection Sunday Show begins at 6:00 p.m. EST.
There are 68 teams that will compete in the NCAA tournament. However, eight of those teams will play in the “First Four” to cement their place in the tournament and take it to a field of 64 by the start of the first round.
