NCAA Tournament: What is ‘Selection Sunday’? How to watch ‘Selection Sunday’ on TV

On Sunday evening, the NCAA DI Men’s Basketball Committee will announce the field of teams for this week’s NCAA Tournament. ‘Selection Sunday’ as it is called, is a massively important day for college basketball fans to see if their teams get selected for the NCAA Tournament.

The NCAA DI Men’s Basketball Committee is responsible for the selection and seeding of the teams in the NCAA Tournament. Some of the work of the committee is made easy by the fact that there are 32 automatic qualifiers. That means the basketball committee needs to decide the remaining 32 teams (eight teams are part of the First Four) that will make up the NCAA Tournament this year.

The ‘Selection Sunday’ show will air live on CBS at 6 p.m. ET.
