Selection Sunday is upon us, and the final bracket reveal is just hours away. There are still plenty of questions surrounding the tournament. Which bubble teams will get in? Which clubs will enter as No. 1 seeds? What matchup will each team get in the early rounds?

These questions and more remain unanswered for now. However, there is still plenty of known information regarding the NCAA tournament before everything is set in stone.

Let's take a look at what we already know about March Madness.
