Inside College Hoops – March 8

We are just days away from Selection Sunday, one of the most anticipated days on the sports calendar. It’s on this day that the NCAA reveals the 68 teams that will comprise the 2011 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

Steve Fisher of San Diego State, with an RPI of 3, hopes for a number one seed if they win the Mountain West Conference this week

 

And then all hell breaks loose.

So with bracketologists making their marks around the country this week, we thought we’d take a stab at it. We’ll do this again on Sunday morning before the actual pairings are announced later that day.

This is a topic we will be discussing on INSIDE SPORTS as well. So be sure to check in with this site over the next few days for more details. 

NOTE: Keep in mind that many conference tournaments are still underway, which is why we’ll make another set of projections later this week. Teams in bold have secured automatic bids for their conferences. Home sites are also projections.
