    2023 NCAA Tournament Map

    We've done this in the past four years (in which tournaments were held - although for, um, reasons last year's somehow went unfinished). The more detailed explanation is in the 2018 thread, but the general principle is that each county in the country is assigned to the 68 NCAA tournament teams by geographic proximity (distance from home arena to geographic center of the county) and then the map consolidates as the games are played (winning team takes losing team's land). Only two sets of adjacent territory games in the first round, both in the West region (although one of those is in the northeast of the county): Connecticut-Iona, and TCU against whoever wins ASU-Nevada (technically, TCU is only adjacent to Arizona State - and only along a small sliver of land in northern New Mexico - but whoever wins the play-in game will own the land regardless). Will update this periodically, but hopefully no less often than the conclusion of a day of games.



    Just be you. You is enough. - K, 4/5/10, 0:13.8 to play, 60-59 Duke.

    You're all jealous hypocrites. - Titus on Laettner

    You see those guys? Animals. They're animals. - SIU Coach Chris Lowery, on Duke

    Thanks for doing this again, and really nice to see Duke blue covering a bit more of the Triangle to start out!

    One of my favorite annual threads. Thanks for doing this again this season! I look forward to seeing a bit more dark blue out there as the tourney progresses.

    This map does not include Hell

    Can we play this like a game of Risk and just take over Tennessee's space?

    It's funny how this shakes out for certain schools that are close to each other.

    Texas Southern is literally across the street from the University of Houston.

    What are the Pantone numbers for Duke (287), UNC-A, and Kentucky? Hard to tell where one blue ends and another begins.

    As long as there's no Pantone 278, I'm happy.

    Reduced to 64, with Duke alums going 2-for-2 so far:

    End of day 1 - appreciate the orange in the southwest; also, the map has lots of purple.

    Yesterday, Oklahoma. Tomorrow, Louisiana (and something a bit farther east, of course).

    Chess pieces into Indiana calls for a mid-day map update!

    First round in the books. Lots and lots of purple in the West.



    In terms of abutting territories tomorrow, Furman and San Diego State will consolidate the SC coast (land originally belonging to Charleston), Arkansas and Kansas border each other in SW Missouri/SE Kansas, and Texas and Penn State border each other in both locations (in Texas via Texas A&M's land, and in NY/PA via Colgate's).

    The map doesnít reflect this, but I am forcing Duke fandom upon as much of Orange County, CA as I can.
    No soup for you!

    From a purely aesthetic point of view lets hope Xavier and Creighton lose in round 2.

    Now that Vermont belongs to Marquette, I can note that the only Marquette fan I've ever met here was the father of Duke's famous Caldbeck brothers who played there way back when.
