After an exciting week of conference championships across America, the NCAA Tournament is officially here. On Sunday night, the tournament selection committee unveiled the bracket for the 2013 NCAA Tournament, anointing Louisville as the #1 overall seed

The Pac-12 managed to get five teams into the bracket: Arizona, UCLA, Oregon, California and Colorado all managed to earn their way to March Madness. Oregon, despite winning the Pac-12 Tournament and ending the season with 26 wins, managed to only get a 12 seed, an indication that the Ducks were not a sure thing to make the tournament prior to beating UCLA last night.

Here's a quick breakdown of the bracket. Louisville, Kansas, Indiana and Gonzaga are the top four seeds. Get your official NCAA Tournament bracket right here!
