March Madness Selection Sunday Preview: Date, Time, and How to Watch

This is the moment we've all been waiting for! On Sunday, CBS will air an exclusive Selection Sunday where they'll pick 68 teams to play in the NCAA Tournament. Those teams who win their conference tournaments will already have a spot reserved. Those teams just don't know exactly where they'll end up in the bracket.

Teams in the AP Top 25 are also very likely to make the NCAA Tournament, despite not winning a conference championship. However, there will always be about six or eight teams sweating out a trip to the NCAA Tournament. Those teams that don't make it or those who were on the bubble just didn't do enough throughout the season to warrant a selection. All of this is explained on the Selection Show.

March Madness Sunday Preview, Date, Time, and How to Watch

  • Date: Sunday, March 13, 2022
  • Game Time: 6:00 pm ET
  • Where to Watch: CBS

The selection show starts at 6 pm to allow all of the conference tournaments a chance to complete their games before the selection committee makes its final decisions on the bracket.

This year, there will be 32 automatic qualifiers with 36 teams having at-large bids. The goal when making the brackets is to have as many teams as close to their campus as possible. The committee wants to reduce team travel to the best of their ability and wants to get fans to travel to games of their favorite teams.

It's a hard job and not everyone is going to be happy with their decisions. But ultimately, the resumes that these teams have throughout a large sample size of games are enough to make decisions. Personally, I wish the committee would look at conference play more and ignore non-conference games that don't mean anything in November. But what do I know? Once the selection show concludes, many outlets will have places where you can then put together a bracket and compete against friends, family, and even strangers. It's the best time of year! Don't miss out!
