NCAA Selection Show 2018: How to watch the bracket reveal

What’ll happen to Middle Tennessee, Saint Mary’s and Saint Bonaventure?

NCAA Basketball: Gonzaga at St. Mary's D. Ross Cameron-USA TODAY Sports

The day has finally arrived.

When the sun sets, we’ll know the 68 teams that’ll be vying for college basketball’s biggest prize. For fans of mid-majors, much of this is semantics. The auto-bids will all be set before Greg Gumbel opens his mouth, but this doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of reason to watch. Locations, seeds and matchups will all be divulged as the country starts buzzing about the hottest upset picks.

That isn’t to say there’s no bubble intrigue at the mid-major level. Will Middle Tennessee’s season-ending, two-game losing streak cost it what seemed a safe spot? Will Saint Mary’s non-conference schedule keep it out of the field? Will the country get to experience the Jaylen Adams/Matt Mobley experience from Saint Bonaventure? Those and all the rest of your burning questions will soon be answered before the fun really begins.
