If there was any year to watch the Selection Sunday broadcast, it is probably this year where going in the top seeds are still up for grabs and plenty of teams sit uncomfortably on the bubble waiting for their name to be announced.
The NCAA Tournament Selection Committee has been pouring over the numbers, data, results and matchups, working against regional logistics and conference differences to place the 68 teams in to the bracket where they each belong.
Many years, by this point in the season, most of the top seeds are realized as the course of the conference tournaments plays out. But again, this isn't like most years. With Duke, Indiana and Georgetown all losing in their respective conference tournaments, the battle for the number one seeds is as open as ever. SB Nation's Mike Rutherford writes that Louisville, Gonzaga, Indiana, Duke, Miami and Kansas all have legitimate shots at the top line. Of course, unfortunately for the six teams, only four are chosen as top seeds for the tournament.
Once again, CBS will broadcast the selection show and the revealing of the brackets. Hosted by a panel of analysts, they will go through the bracket region by region, naming the No. 1 seeds.
