March Madness bracket will not be released for canceled NCAA tournament

NCAA Men’s Basketball vice president Dan Gavitt issued a statement saying no bracket would be released for the 2020 NCAA Basketball Tournament that was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

He noted that there would always be an asterisk next to the 2020 NCAA men’s and women’s basketball championships regardless if brackets were released.

“The important work of the basketball committees is to set up competitively balanced brackets to determine national champions,” Gavitt said. “I don’t believe it’s responsible or fair to do that with incomplete seasons—especially for tournaments that unfortunately won’t be played. Therefore there will not be any NCAA Division I men’s and women’s basketball championship selection shows or tournament brackets released this year.”
