Fourth Quarter Sports’ selection Sunday

The College Basketball season has finally reached the end of the regular season and conference tournament play! But the part of the season we’ve all been waiting for is now here! The NCAA March Madness tournament and the bracket challenge will all be finalized around the same time as you read this.

But like we have done all season long Fourth Quarter Sports is giving you our edition of the March Madness tournament. I have given you a weekly top 25 that includes several teams we will see in the tournament, but I’ve also given you a peek at some teams in smaller conferences that may or may not make the tournament, but have surprised us this season!

We already know about the 32 conference tournament champions that will get automatic bids into the tournament, but let’s find out the rest of the field and where they will all be seeded!
