March Madness: What's holding Kansas, Villanova back from winning it all?
Friday March 10th, 2017

It's that time of year when millions of Americans fill out their NCAA Tournament brackets with high hopes, only to find their brackets completely destroyed by the end of the first weekend of games.

You, too, can take your chances and fill out a printable bracket. Maybe this year will be different. 

Villanova, Kansas, U.N.C. and Gonzaga locked up No. 1 seeds. Last year, Villanova defeated North Carolina in the national championship game. Kansas is making its 28th consecutive appearance in the tournament. 

Northwestern clinched its first berth ever in tournament history.

The first game of the second round (the round of 64) starts Thursday with a scheduled tip at 12:15 p.m. ET.

The national semifinals will take place from University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., on April 1. CBS will have the national broadcast and the national championship will be played April 3, also on CBS.
