Brackets were announced on Sunday and the defending champion Connecticut Huskies earned the top seed in the NCAA Tournament, joined by Houston, Purdue, and North Carolina as No. 1 seeds.

Fans need to fill out their brackets promptly because the action kicks off later this week.

The tournament starts Tuesday with two First Four games, including a matchup between Virginia and Colorado State. The 32 first-round games take place on Thursday and Friday. The Final Four is set for April 6-8 in Glendale, Arizona.
