March Madness perfect – these Germans are there
The bracket for March Madness will be announced on Selection Sunday. This year, three Germans will take part in the battle for the college title.
The bracket for March Madness (from 14. March LIVE on TV on SPORT1 US and DAZN)! On Selection Sunday, the NCAA tournament schedule for the NCAA Tournament, in which the US College Basketball Championship champions will be played, was announced by fans, teams and experts.
Three Germans are taking part this year: Moritz Wagner with the Michigan Wolverines, Gavin Schilling with the Michigan State Spartans and Max Montana from the San Diego State Aztecs.
Wagner, who recently won the final of the Big Ten Tournament with Michigan (75:66 against Purdue Boilermakers) and thus successfully defended his title, has a good chance in the tournament. In the first round, the three seeded Wolverines face Montana Grizzlies.

Experts also count the Spartans by Schilling as one of the favourites. They are also seeded at number three and will be dealt with the Bucknell Bison in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
Max Montana, formerly Max Hoetzel, and his Aztecs, on the other hand, are classified as outsiders at 11. In round 1 they challenge the Houston Cougars (6).
