March Madness Bracket 2013: Breakdown By Conference

The complete 2013 NCAA tournament field was announced during the Selection Show on Sunday evening and, for once, there was not much of an outcry about the “snubs” in the field. It was hard to argue with the teams that earned their spots and the ones that the selection committee chose to place in the field.

One of the most interesting aspects of the NCAA tournament is viewing the breakdown of teams to determine which college basketball conference reigns supreme. This year, to a surprise of no one, the Big East and Big Ten lead the pack.
