NCAA Tournament 2022 selection format

The 2022 NCAA Tournament will comprise 68 teams at its start: 32 automated qualifiers (i.east., teams that win their respective briefing tournament championships) and 36 at-large bids. That mark was 31-37 terminal year, respectively, after the Ivy League elected to cancel its conference tournament in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The committee has no hard and fast rule to determine seeding, merely does accept such things as tape, strength of schedule, the NET and RPI to determine seeding. The committee also uses the Southward-bend to seed the teams from 1-68 in a snaking pattern. And then the summit four teams (1-iv) would be the No. ane seeds in each of their corresponding regions. Teams numbered five-8 through would be the 2-seeds in their regions, and so on.

The committee attempts to identify teams in regions based where they identify on the Due south-bend, simply it must take several factors into consideration when it comes to seeding, including prioritizing shorter travel altitude for teams that are in a higher place in the seeding. In 2021, because the entirety of the tournament took place within the state of Indiana, the commission didn’t need to take things such every bit geographic preferences into consideration. Information technology was, in a sense, the most accurately seeded tournament in March Madness history.
