It’s never too early to come out with an NCAA basketball tournament bracket prediction, at least not for ESPN’s Joe Lunardi.

Lunardi is known as ESPN’s chief college basketball tournament analyst, coining the term “bracketology” to describe the process in which the NCAA decides the 68 teams that will participate in the NCAA tournament. He is back with his latest predictions for the 2023 basketball tournament, with the Florida Gators projected to make the tournament as a No. 10 seed taking on the No. 7 seed Michigan Wolverines in the South regional.

This is an improvement from their previous projection, which had Florida listed in the First Four Out group missing the tournament altogether. If this projection holds, the Gators would make the NCAA tournament in head coach Todd Golden’s first year at the helm and would be a quick return to March Madness after playing in the NIT last year.

Lunardi’s current bracket features seven schools from the Big Ten, SEC, Big 12, and Big East, along with six schools from the ACC, four schools from the Pac-12, and two schools each from the Mountain West, WCC, American, and Atlantic 10.
