College basketball fans — keep up with the 2006 NCAA tournament action with Visio templates! You loved them last year, so we brought them back for the 2006 season. Just download the 2006 NCAA men's bracket or 2006 NCAA women's bracket template from Downloads on Microsoft Office Online. (Visio 2003 is required.)
Make your team stand out If your team or alma mater gets invited to the playoffs, you can use the coloring features in Visio to make it stand out. For information about coloring shapes, see About shape colors, Apply a fill to a closed shape, and Format shapes.
Track more than one division If you also want to track Division II or Division III games, make a copy of the template before you customize it so that you won't have to download the template file more than once.
Track your teams in Excel Visio is your best choice for visually displaying the teams in their NCAA brackets, but the Visio templates don't do math. If you're more interested in using Excel to track your teams as they advance, download the 2006 NCAA men's bracket or 2006 NCAA women's bracket template from Office Downloads.
Invite your friends Last but not least, if you're planning a March Madness party, you can download the College basketball party invitation.
