The March Madness 2013 bracket has been officially revealed as of Sunday evening on CBS. The "NCAA Championship Selection Show" was seen at 6 p.m. EST on local affiliate station WDBJ 7, with all of the teams and seeds unveiled for this year's "Big Dance." Greg Gumble hosted this year's special and was joined by Seth Davis, Greg Anthony and Doug Gottlieb.
According to on March 17 on ESPN, this year's #1 seeds will be Indiana, Kansas, Gonzaga and Louisville. There were 31 automatic bids and 37 at large bids. The #1 overall seed this year is the Louisville Cardinals after winning a share of the Big East regular season title, and the Conference Championship just yesterday.
Louisville will be in the Midwest region and will play the winner of the North Carolina A&T vs. Liberty game in the First Four. Surprisingly, the Duke Blue Devils will be a #2 seed in the same region, rather than a #1 this year.
Other #1 seeds this year will be Kansas in the South region, Indiana in the East region, and Gonzaga in the West. Gonzaga was ranked #1 overall in the nation heading into Selection Sunday.
