With Selection Sunday just four days away, the NCAA selection committee is already putting in the preliminary work to formulate this year’s tournament bracket and the official March Madness Twitter account has been tweeting out some cool behind the scenes look at the selection process.
Hoops fans have gotten a glimpse of the selection room at the NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis and the members of the committee who build the bracket.
The selection committee even took the time to pose for an awesome selfie resembling the Oscars selfie from Ellen DeGeneres that has been retweeted over three million times.
Unfortunately for the selection committee, I don’t think their tweet will achieve the online fame of DeGeneres’ tweet, but I can certainly appreciate the effort and sense of humor.
The group is already hard at work, assembling the preliminary ballot for at-large qualifiers.
The initial at-large ballot is being cast right now for teams outside of the AQ pool… #Selections— NCAA March Madness (@marchmadness) March 12, 2014
Bubble teams across the country still have their conference tournaments to state their case to the committee that they are worthy of a berth. The committee will be watching.
