NCAA Tournament selection show will be different this year

NCAA Tournament selection show will be different this year

"We are going to reveal the 68 teams as quickly as possible - probably within the 15 minutes we should have it all out there". This year, there won't be as much suspense regarding the bubble teams. The Tigers then downed Iowa State in the semifinals and followed the next day with a 68-56 win over Kansas State for a conference title. These games are usually played a few days after Selection Sunday and determine which of the eight teams playing will advance to the first round of the tournament.

The big boy power conference tournaments are now under way, so these bubble teams may drop like flies or rise into the tournament field. Junior center Tyler Davis (14.7 points, 8.7 rebounds per game) has been Texas A&M's go-to guy on offense. However, Notre Dame still has some work to do if it wants to keep its season alive beyond the ACC tourney. That has been one of the drumbeats as the scandal-plagued NCAA prepares to tip off March Madness. But the Midwest and East are loaded with highly-ranked teams, meaning someone will be left out. The one with the most points at the end of the tournament will win the #Grand Prize of a 10,000 dollar Amazon gift card and a trip to the 2018 Maui Jim Maui Invitational.

On the other hand, Syracuse appears to be out after needing a quality win over North Carolina.

ESPN predicts Gonzaga to enter as a No. 12 seed in the tournament as WWC champs.

Though several teams have already punched their tickets to the NCAA Tournament, the bulk of the major conference tournaments will be played this week.

Well here's what their real record is at 18-13: they're really 11-13. The rating is due to players Johnathan Williams, Josh Perkins and Killian Tillie, all of whom helped their team reach last year's national title game. Since then, that trio has played key roles in getting the Pirates back to the NCAA tournament two years in a row and winning the 2016 Big East tournament. Auburn is the No. 1 seed after they shared the SEC's regular season crown with Tennessee. He believes that will hurt their resume in the eyes of the selection committee.

In actuality, there is nothing team X can do to advance from the "first four out" category because it doesn't exist. But late in the season, the Friars got going.

Opening the Pac-12 Tournament against Colorado, the Sun Devils fell in their first double-digit loss of the season.

Lunardi has them as a No. 11 seed right now, but a loss against Colorado on Wednesday night might let Alabama or someone else slip ahead of them in the rankings. If the Gators are missing shots, they could be ousted in the first game.

Creighton is likely in the tournament even if it loses to Providence, but the Friars don't have that margin for error. All 67 tournament games will again be nationally televised across CBS, TBS, TNT and truTV, and stream online and on mobile devices via NCAA March Madness Live. They'll look to Sexton to try to lift them out of that malaise, win a couple SEC Tournament games, and put them more firmly in the field.
