I know I will not be missing a game nor will I be missing any of the great eats. How do I choose my teams? That's right boys and girls; it's March Madness time!

"I can remember the teams playing Wiffle ball one day", Beilein said.

On TV, it was the lead-in for CBS to the Selection Sunday show. However, the madness truly does happen in March.

"In a ideal world that would be great", Beilien said when asked if he preferred to play this Thursday or Friday. This group, titled the Sweet Sixteen, is often where the casual watcher begins to actually start to pay attention. Oh, if you knew automatically what 68 teams were in the fray. Duke is slotted by both as a No. 2 seed, also in Charlotte. Teams are chosen to participate in two ways.

A 74-54 win over BYU in the West Coast Conference Tournament title game Tuesday night gave the Bulldogs an automatic bid to the NCAAs. Many conference tournament titles are yet to be won, so this weekend will prove to be a survival of the fittest for programs that may lie on the bubble.

Alabama went and lost their last five games of the regular season, putting their tournament hopes in serious doubt. This is how the remaining 36 teams are chosen.

Notre Dame. The Irish (19-13, 69 RPI) had some nervous moments late in their three-point victory over 24-loss team Pittsburgh in the first round of the ACC Tournament. One more win will likely seal a March Madness berth for the Orange, who are among Lunardi's next four out.

The 6-foot-10 forward, however, is expected to return to action in the SEC Tournament and should provide a boost to a team that still managed to play itself into the postseason picture despite its best player going down. Teams go head-to-head until a final four is chosen from the Midwest, West, South, and East Regional games.

Michigan Basketball ranked No. 7 in AP; No

But the run will end for the defending national champions in the title game, where top-seeded Virginia (28-2) will be waiting after pounding its first two opponents into defensive submission.

With a solid effective field goal percentage and the No. 7 defense, Michigan State University is a solid contender in this year's tournament. The ACC opened play Tuesday with Boston College's win against Georgia Tech. Despite being cleared, Bridges' performance has not been as strong since. Moe Wagner is one of the best players in our league. Payments of up to $150,000, supplied by Adidas, were promised to at least three top high school recruits to attend two schools sponsored by the shoe company, according to federal prosecutors.

The Wolverines entered the Big Ten Tournament as the five seed.

Meanwhile, Lunardi has the Wildcats as one of the last four byes in the tournament, so an embarrassing first-round loss in the Big 12 tourney, coupled with some SEC bubble teams winning a game or two, will make things interesting on Selection Sunday. If Kentucky has multiple weapons rolling then they could easily make a run and win this event. "Wagner and teammate Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman were named to the All-Tournament Team, along with Purdue's Carsen Edwards, Penn State's Tony Carr, and Rutgers" Corey Sanders.

While Oklahoma and Arizona State are forced to wait out their respective NCAA tournament fates, Marquette, Texas, Oklahoma State and others have opportunities to improve their respective resumes Thursday.

There was some significant upheaval in the SEC power structure in 2017-18, with Auburn (25-6) and Tennessee (23-7) sharing first place after being picked to finish ninth and 13th, respectively.

Here's a look at the 2018 SEC Tournament.
