NCAA Tournament Selection Show unveils new format, new channel

NCAA Tournament Selection Show unveils new format, new channel

CBS and Turner announced the tweak to the selection show format Tuesday.

Because the Big Ten chose to hold its tournament at Madison Square Garden, it required the league to move up its schedule a full week earlier than normal.

Statistics courtesy of and are through games of Sunday, March 4.

"I think any number of teams certainly could win the championship in the conference, and any number of the teams certainly could go on to win an NCAA championship", Notre Dame coach Jeff Jackson said. As a result, its teams will have seven days before officially learning their postseason fates on Selection Sunday.

Another way to help Nebraska punch their ticket in March would have been to win at least one game in the Big Ten Tournament.

Ohio State forward Miguel Fidler controls the puck next to Wisconsin goalie Jack Berry during last year's Big Ten tournament. Wasn't good. Wasn't healthy.

"If we're going to practice, we're going to practice", Miles said.

"But as I said to the crowd, to play in this arena in front of that crowd, which was, I feel, was very pro-Michigan, that's a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us". As we know well, anything can happen... and has. It won't be on a regular basis. The champion in each of those events earns an automatic bid to March Madness, so almost half of field will already know it's in. While the Bruins are the four-seed this week, they've got one of the conference's best players in point guard Aaron Holiday and contributors such as Thomas Welsh and Kris Wilkes aren't slouches, either.

Purdue (28-6) chipped away late with MI missing free throws run but it was way too late.

Tom Izzo spoke with The Detroit News about the competitiveness of the tournament. "We have to go and take care of business in the tournament, which we haven't won since 1979". "And in all fairness, the regular season with an 18-game schedule, to persevere through that is probably more hard than the conference tournament".

That's the trade-off the conference had to make to play its tournament at Madison Square Garden for the first time.

Penn State has to wait on the committee to pick teams, as they ended their season upsetting Ohio State and barely losing to Purdue in the Big Ten Tournament.

Here's the schedule for the remaining games courtesy of the Big Ten.

Oklahoma of the Big 12 also has been a bad bet this season; the Sooners, led by superstar freshman Trae Young, can beat anyone in Norman but are putrid away from home at 3-10 ATS.

No. 14 Texas Tech, the second seed, opens play against the Iowa State-Texas victor, while No. 18 West Virginia faces bubble team Baylor to wrap up the quarterfinals.

The 23rd-ranked Gators were No. 8 in the preseason and hit No. 5 in early December, then fell out two weeks later, re-entered for two weeks in January and then slid back out.
