Selection Sunday 2018 Results: Printable NCAA Bracket, Seeds, Twitter Reaction

There are few things more beautiful in sports than a clean and fresh-off-the-presses NCAA tournament bracket, and college basketball fans were treated to such Sunday. The full 68-team bracket for the men's tournament was released on TBS' broadcast, and Virginia, Kansas, Villanova and Xavier were the four No. They will certainly have plenty of pitfalls on the way to the Final Four, though, as there is plenty of talent dispersed across the country.
