After weeks of speculation about who would be in the NCAA Tournament, the field is set. Now, the speculation turns to upset predictions, Final Four picks and who will be cutting down the nets in Indianapolis on Apr. 6. If you like to fill out a bracket with a pen and paper, you're in the right place.
You can download a PDF of our printable bracket here. CBS announced the field on Sunday night.
The Kentucky Wildcats are the heavy favorite. They romped their way through the regular season and SEC tournament and are 34-0 heading into the tourney. Wichita State was undefeated heading into the 2014 NCAA Tournament, but Kentucky defeated in the round of 32 on their way to the championship game. Coach John Calipari's NBA-ready roster has been unstoppable this season. Willie Cauley-Stein and Karl-Anthony Towns are dominant forces down low, and even if they get into foul trouble, Kentucky has backups in droves. If they can reel off six straight to win the title, they'll be the first team since the 1975-76 Indiana Hoosiers to finish the season undefeated and the first collegiate team ever to go 40-0.

A few teams hope to spoil the Big Blue Nation party, though.
The Virginia Cavaliers and Duke Blue Devils both lost in the ACC semifinals, but both teams have the tools to make runs deep into the tournament. Virginia is a defensive juggernaut with veteran talent and has one of the best coaches in the NCAA with Tony Bennett. Coach Mike Krzyzewski and Duke have one of the best players in the nation in Jahlil Okafor. They're hoping to forget about last year's early exit from the tournament at the hands of Mercer.
The Wisconsin Badgers are another threat. They lost to Kentucky in the Final Four last season, but return four starters from that squad. They won the Big 10 regular season and conference title. Frank Kaminsky is one of the best players in college basketball and his veteran team is capable of winning six straight.
Arizona is one of the hottest teams in the NCAA. They just won the Pac-12 tournament title with a 28-point blowout of Oregon. The Wildcats have won 11 straight to climb to 31-3. Freshman Stanley Johnson is just one of coach Sean Miller's many threats. After losing in the Elite Eight to Wisconsin last year, Arizona is looking to make its first Final Four since they lost in the NCAA title game to Duke in 2001.

Like Arizona, Villanova is also on fire. They plowed through the Big East to win the regular season title and the conference tournament. At 32-2 this season, they're hoping to make it further than they did in 2014, when they lost to the eventual NCAA-Champion UConn team in the round of 32. They've won 15 straight heading into the tournament this year. Villanova is full of sharpshooters -- they hit 47 percent of their shots. Sophomore Josh Hart is especially dangerous, making 46.8 percent of his three-point shots this season.
