Bracket breakdown: March 12

← return to D1SCOURSE

Is this close to the same bracket as earlier in the week?

Yes.

Why? Pretty simple. Why blow up the whole thing when only a few results of note have unfolded.

So there is some shuffling. But for the most part this is similar.

The next bracket – likely coming tomorrow or Saturday morning – will have quite a different look.
