To create the championship bracket, schools were randomly placed within the final championship bracket based on their group. For example, the Group A schools were randomly assigned a seed between 1 and 8, and will face a Group D school in the first round. The groups were redrawn as needed to ensure that no team would face a team from their own conference in the first two rounds.
