NCAA made changes Bracktology for 2021 men's basketball tournament

NCAA made changes for 2021 men's basketball March Madness Bracktology.

The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament being contested in one location – Indiana – this year is not only a geographical novelty. The seeding of this year's tournament for the 68 teams will also be different.  

The 2021 March Madness tournament will mostly feature true seed, as all the games are played in one location. Normally, the committee's bracketing choices are guided by the location of the school to the tournament venue

 With geography not a consideration this year, the bracketing will follow the "S-curve" method. The top four teams will be seeded in four separate brackets, and the No. 5 overall seed (the highest 2-seed) will be placed in the same "region" as the No. 4 overall seed (the lowest 1-seed). The No. 8 overall seed would be placed in the bracket with the No. 1 overall seed, and so would be the No. 9 overall seed (the top three seed).

 The process will be repeated itself for the remaining seeds. The NCAA reported that the Committee plans "to stay true to the S-curve," but the following intra-conference factors will also occur as they have done in the past years:

 The top four teams from one conference will be in different regions if they are seeded on the first four lines.  

Teams shall not meet before the regional final if they played three or more times during the regular season and should not play before the regional semifinals if they played twice.

 Rematches of nonconference games in the First Four and first round should be avoided.

 This year's March Madness will take place at a variety of arenas across the state, including Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Hinkle Fieldhouse, Indiana Farmers Coliseum and Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis; Mackey Arena in West Lafayette (Purdue); and Assembly Hall in Bloomington (Indiana University). Selection Sunday is March 14.
