2021 PRINTABLE NCAA BRACKET
It’s been almost two years since a March Madness champion was crowned. The NCAA was forced to call off the 2020 tournament due to the coronavirus pandemic.
But after a season of learning how to play with new health and safety protocols, the show will go on in an all-Indiana fashion.
The entirety of the 2021 NCAA Tournament will take place within the Hoosier State with some spectators allowed in to catch the live action.
Top seeds Gonzaga, Michigan, Illinois and Baylor will aim to be more like championship-winning Virginia in 2019 and less like the Cavaliers in 2018 — the first No. 1 seed to fall to a No. 16 seed.
Gonzaga, the No. 1 overall seed, enters the tournament 26-0 and will get the winner of the Appalachian State-Norfolk State play-in game.
Virginia will have a chance for an unconventional repeat as the No. 4 seed in the West Region against No.13 seed Ohio after the Cavaliers were forced out of the ACC Tournament due to a positive COVID-19 test.
Not in the field? Tournament regulars Kentucky and Duke will all be watching the Big Dance from the sidelines.
