The 68 teams picked to compete in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament are revealed Sunday, March 13, in the NCAA Basketball Championship Selection Show on CBS. This year’s show is expanded to two hours, with live unveiling of the brackets and analysis of the seedings on CBS beginning at 5:30pm ET. Turner Sports’ Ernie Johnson joins CBS Sports’ Greg Gumbel in hosting the show from New York City. Analysts include Clark Kellogg, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith, Seth Davis and Doug Gottlieb. NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee Chairman Joseph R. Castiglione will be in studio to discuss (read: “defend”) the selection process. The show will also be available via NCAA March Madness Live online and on mobile devices.
Tournament action begins with the First Four March 15-16 on truTV. CBS, TBS, TNT and truTV combine to televise every tournament game through April 4. This is the first year in which TBS, TNT and truTV air the National Championship Game.
