Play the Tournament: the NCAA Tournament bracket you need!

The NCAA Tournament was understandably canceled due to the coronavirus, but we thought there should be a fun way for college basketball fans to still enjoy an event that takes over the nation — and office pools — every year. Instead of cheering for your favorite team on the court, place your vote and help them advance in this interactive bracket to crown the national champion! 

Brad Wachtel, one of the most accurate bracketologists in the country, built a bracket of 64 teams based on standings when the college basketball season was suspended. No No. 1 seed survived the regional tournaments and among the final teams are a 10th-seeded Cinderella and some odds-defying wolverines. Here is a downloadable version if you want to follow along offline!

Every vote can make a difference. After you pick your favorite teams, please consider a donation to the Center of Disease Philanthropy's COVID-19 Response Fund, a charity dedicated to helping local nonprofit organizations in areas identified as having high numbers of people affected by the illness.
