HOW TO FOLLOW THE TOURNAMENT’S POD SYSTEM Identify each of the four regional brackets of the NCAA basketball playoff tournament field. Each is comprised of 16 teams and four pods.

1

Pod 1 is comprised of the number 1 seeded and the number 16 seeded teams, who meet in the first round, and the number 8 and number 9 teams, which also battle. Pod 2 is made up of number 2 vs. number 15 and number 7 vs. number 10. Pod 3 includes number 3 vs. number 14, and number 6 vs. number 11, while Pod 4 holds number 4 vs. number 13 and number 5 vs. number 12.

2

Notice that the pods are structured to ensure that the top 4 teams cannot possibly meet each other until there are only 4 teams left alive in the region.

3

Teams are not re-seeded in later rounds. In the pod system, a number 16 team can meet a number 15 team in the second round if both lower-ranked clubs upset their higher-ranked opponents.
