The NCAA selection committee released its bracket Sunday, and the East Region is a tough one.

It's time for March Madness to officially begin and for your NCAA bracket to get filled out.

Gonzaga is the top seed in the West, where Arizona will be the No. 2.

Championship Week has officially come to a close, and we're just minutes away from the unveiling of the bracket for the 2017 edition of the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament, aka March Madness.

The Pac-12 will have four teams in the tournament. For those looking to follow along and update the bracket as they go, there is a printable NCAA Tournament bracket available below.

The Sweet Sixteen games will be played on Thursday, March 23 and Friday, March 24.

The Elite Eight runs on Saturday, March 25, and Sunday, March 26. The Road to the Final Four starts Tuesday with the First Four playing in Dayton, Ohio.

The field will be announced during the CBS Selection Sunday Show.

Syracuse (18-14) found itself on the wrong side of the bubble after failing to win five of its last seven games, while Rhode Island, led by former Seton Hall guard Danny Hurley, earned an automatic bid by winning the Atlantic 10 title Sunday.

Kansas likely will still earn one of the four No. 1 seeds, and may play the first weekend in Tulsa and the second weekend in Kansas City, giving the Jayhawks a sort of home-court advantage. "The problem is, there is no set formula for HOW MUCH they take the absences into account, so it's impossible to know".
