stephen's 2012 big east basketball bracket

Filling out NCAA College Basketball men's bracket attracts millions of Americans every year including the president himself who in the past three years hasn't missed his famous "Obama bracket." College basketball fans everywhere like competing with their friends for their fantasy bracket bragging rights. Just like filling out NFL fantasy team, countless hours have been spent focusing primarily on NCAA bracket prediction on who will emerge as winner of the 68 college basketball teams.

From the announcement of the initial 64 teams — to eliminations that determine the Sweet 16 to the Elite 8 — all the action ultimately leads to the Final Four games and the annual championship played at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta on April 8, 2013.

At the end of the college basketball season, there are traditionally 12 teams that have come out ahead. These are generally known as the Big 12. The teams are lined up to play each other in a March Madness bracket that pits teams against each other.

With eliminations, the bracket is narrowed down until there are only four teams left - the Final Four that represents the South, East, West and Midwest regions. At this point, the NCAA tournament gets really interesting with a leveled playing field that no team is really considered dominant.

Currently, Gonzaga holds the AP top 25 teams in the country and is expected to hold the top seed when Indiana Hoosiers lost to Wisconsin in the Big Ten semis. However, No. 2 Duke lost to unranked Maryland in ACC quarterfinals while No. 4 Louisville rallies against Syracuse to win 2nd straight Big East title and could be the No.2 seed overall.

The 2013 NCAA bracketology selection announcement was released Sunday night, March 17, -- as 68 college basketball teams are officially broadcast at 6 p.m. ET on CBS.
