NCAA Bracket 2016: Live Results, Reaction to Selection Sunday Show

Joe Tansey@JTansey90Featured ColumnistMarch 13, 2016

The field of 68 for the 2016 NCAA men's basketball tournament was announced on Sunday with plenty of controversy surrounding the announcement.

Bubble teams Syracuse and Tulsa moved into the Big Dance instead of mid-major programs Monmouth, San Diego State, Valparaiso and St. Bonaventure. 

The Kansas Jayhawks earned the No. 1 overall seed and the top spot in the South region. The Villanova Wildcats, who were seen as a top seed throughout the season, picked up the No. 2 seed in the South. 

The North Carolina Tar Heels headline the East region, where they will face a potential matchup with the No. 4 Kentucky Wildcats. Kentucky has a potential rivalry clash with the No. 5 Indiana Hoosiers in the second round. 

In the Midwest region, the Virginia Cavaliers secured the No. 1 seed. Virginia is joined by the Michigan State Spartans and Utah Utes as the top teams in that bracket. 

The West region features the Oregon Ducks as a first-time No. 1 seed. The big story out of the West was the alignment of the Texas Longhorns, Texas A&M Aggies and Oklahoma Sooners. Texas A&M could face Texas in the second round before a potential Sweet 16 matchup with the Sooners.
