The 2023 March Madness begins during the middle of March in what will be the biggest college basketball tournament after all the conference championships.

It is likely that a big favorite will win the tournament this year as it is also likely that some small team will go far as happened in the 2020 season when the San Diego State Aztecs were close to making history but covid-19 got in the way.

Not all schools get an automatic ticket to play in the 2023 March Madness, for the other schools that are not on the automatic list they will have a last shot during Selection Sunday.

List of automatic qualifiers for the 2023 March Madness tournament

68 teams will play in the 2023 March Madness that begins on March 14, but only 32 teams get automatic qualification after winning their respective conference championships.
