hesgoaltv.us | This March, a new champion of college basketball will be crowned as 68 teams battle in the 2022 NCAA tournament.

The beginning of March is here and all basketball fans know what that means, it’s March Madness Season. 

All season long the top men’s college basketball teams in the country have battled it out trying to earn the best possible seeds for this upcoming NCAA Tournament for a very good reason. Since 1985, a No. 1 seed has won the national championship 23 out of 36 times. In recent years, a No. 1 seed has won the championship 11 out of the last 14 tournaments. 

Therefore, seeding is very important and significant for teams who have a chance to make a championship, or even Cinderella, run for the title. 

Meanwhile, here are the current seeding predictions, teams that are in the bubble, and teams that have the best odds to be the last team standing.
