Bracketology Distance Chart 2022: Distance between every D-1 program and NCAA Tournament location

As the 2022 NCAA Tournament grows closer and closer, it’s time to talk about proximity.

The 2022 NCAA Tournament is growing nearer by the day, which means bracketologists everywhere are locking themselves in the bunker as they create their projected fields. For the most diehard of the prognosticators, the exercise isn’t complete until teams are placed into their first-round pod.

But that process can be a tedious one. For many folks, it involves sitting down with Google Maps for a while and entering in city after city, jotting down the results, and then seeing which teams are supposed to go to which sites.

Who has time for all that?

Fear not — Heat Check CBB has your back! Below is our Bracketology Distance Chart, which displays every Division I program’s proximity to each of the 12 NCAA Tournament sites. (Pro-tip: use the search function to cull your list down!)
