March Madness Selection Show 2017

Madness level in March to be determined by this week's games

Has Syracuse basketball done enough to make the NCAA Tournament?

Viewers can also access March Madness Live on their Amazon Alexa, Xbox, Amazon Fire tablets, Apple TV, Chromecast, and Roku. There is a certain amount of luck and mystique which simply can not be accounted for in order to create the ideal bracket - which is probably why it has never been done.

Each member of the group is allowed to enter one bracket. "I feel like we're playing some of our best basketball".

Things happened yesterday in college basketball. But I can't express how much more enjoyable the day is when I know my favorite team is a lock to go dancing. Thompson hasn't been exactly flawless, but his ability to score inside has given Syracuse a threat to balance the floor. Two of those teams aren't even going to the Tourney. However, that doesn't prevent people from trying. That means at the least five conferences will not be sending their best representative to the NCAA Tournament. Each of the sixty-three games have two possible outcomes, and each different outcome creates its own alternate bracket. That's one in more than nine quintillion.

Teams are holding watch parties at universities as they learn the six- or seven-game path they must navigate to win a title.

Coach John Calipari and players usually head to his house after returning to watch the Selection Show, but weren't back in time this year to discover they're headed to Indianapolis - at least, not in front of assembled media stationed in the coach's living room.

Other teams like West Virginia, Wisconsin, Purdue and Michigan State are projected to be in that Midwest Bracket. The odds of winning the Powerball are 1/175,223,510. At this time of the year, everyone has a few small injuries.

First off, ESPN.com is now allowing its users to fill out 25 separate brackets this year, while only allowing up to 10 in years past. So that 10-8 conference record is a bit misleading.

The case for Duke comes down mostly to accounting, which I'm sure the people at the Fuqua School of Business would appreciate.

The Hoosiers dropped two regular season meetings this year against the Badgers, but have played with a renewed sense of objective during their last 80 minutes. Last year's Big Dance turned out OK for the Wildcats, no?

68 teams (out of the hundreds eligible for the tournament) will participate in March Madness.

Of course, this is something that we've known all season.

Now, will there be upsets this year?

Georgetown and STJ were the eighth and ninth best teams in the Big East. Syracuse lost to both AT HOME.
