Selection Sunday is finally here! A small slate of games today as most conference tourneys are complete. The American takes over the Big Ten's annual Time Slot That Is Too Late For The Committee To Care About The Result, tipping at 3:30 and finishing mere minutes before the selection show begins. Actually, can you imagine if the game went into OT or even double OT? It's too bad that Memphis lost yesterday because that could've led to some hilarity on the set of
CBS TBS and in the committee's board room if the show had to begin but the game result was still in doubt.
Anyway, here are today's matchups:
|MATCHUP||TIME (ET)||NAT TV||TICKETS||LOCATION|
||Buy on Vivid Seats||The Palestra, Philadelphia, PA|
|1:00 PM||CBS||147 tickets as low as $38||Capital One Arena, Washington, DC|
||658 tickets as low as $44||Scottrade Center, St. Louis, MO|
|UT Arlington||2:00 PM||
||Buy on Vivid Seats||Lakefront Arena, New Orleans, LA|
|#21Houston||3:30 PM||CBS||570 tickets as low as $6||Amway Center, Orlando, FL|
Don't think it matters who wins in the SEC or the American -- Michigan isn't passing UT or UC and I think UK has too much ground to make up (Houston is pretty solidly a 6). A Davidson victory steals a bid from a bubble team so schools like Louisville, ASU, and St. Mary's are big Rhode Island fans today.
