We had an amazing 2019-2020 NCAA college basketball season until it was taken away from us by COVID-19.
Because of the coronavirus, the NCAA announced on Friday that they were canceling the 2020 Men’s Basketball Tournament, which means we will have to miss out on one of the most fun times of the year.
But instead of just sitting back and accepting that the NCAA Tournament will not take place, we decided to have a little bit of fun here at DSN by coming up with our own bracket, which will play out over the next handful of weeks until the Final Four is revealed and a National Champion is crowned.
Here is a look at the full bracket:
Before we can get started with the Round of 64, we have four play-in games to take care of. The first two of those took place on Tuesday in Dayton, OH, with the following matchups:
No. 11 Stanford vs. No. 11 North Carolina State
No. 16 Boston University vs. No. 16 Prairie View A&M
And now, for the results of our first two games.
As you can see, North Carolina State and Prairie View A&M have landed themselves in the Round of 64!
N.C. State will now take on No. 6 Arizona in the South Region, while Prairie View A&M will have the tough task of squaring off against No. 1 Dayton in the East Region.
Make sure to check back on Wednesday as we will have the results for the following play-in games from Dayton.
No. 12 Wichita State vs. No. 12 Richmond
No. 16 Robert Morris vs. No. 16 North Carolina Central
