NCAA Tournament Selection Show, 6:00 PM, CBS
First up a big shout out to Chris Strosahl. I made the call to the bullpen at 3:30 AM after four straight days of covering UNC in Greensboro. He set the table with this excellent piece covering where UNC might end up when the selection committee releases the seeding at 6;00 PM. Consider that your recommended reading before the selection show kicks off.
At last check CBS' Jerry Palm and ESPN's Joe Lunardi still have UNC as the #4 seed in West with Wisconsin as the #1. Syracuse.com and longtime ACC writer Patrick Stevens who had one of the most accurate brackets last season, has the Tar Heels as the #4 seed in the West with Villanova as the #1 seed.
As always, UNC fans are a bit paranoid about the bracket as it pertains to being paired with Kansas or some other match-up. Speaking of which, former UNC assistant Jerod Haase led UAB to the Conference USA title on Saturday and an automatic bid. I don't think UAB is quite good enough for a #13 seed and UNC played the Blazers already this season so at least we probably won't get that match-up.
Comments if you have 'em.
