The NCAA men’s tournament bracket was unveiled on Sunday, March 17, with the reigning NCAA champions, the UConn Huskies, announced as the No. 1 overall seed.

This marks the first time in school history that the Huskies have been awarded the No. 1 overall seed.

The Huskies secured the top overall seed following a historic regular season, wherein they set a school record with 28 wins before culminating with a flawless 3-0 run at the Big East Tournament.

This season, UConn secured their 11th Big East regular-season championship, marking their first since 2006, and their eighth Big East Tournament title, which is their first since 2011.
