In about an hour dreams will be made, and dreams will be crushed. Such is the NCAA's March Madness Selection Show. Teams all across the country hoping to hear their name called for an invitation to the big dance, and it all unfolds on live television.
Join us, as we talk about the selections, and discuss seeding as we wait with crossed fingers for Oklahoma State to have their name called. Last season, Marcus Smart talked with the media about what it was like being selected for the tourney.
"I was excited, because we were kind of on the bubble at first. You know this team finally got out some wins. We won five of our last seven games ending the season. It just felt good to see our names pop up on TV." Smart said.
Once again this season, The Cowboys find themselves in a familiar spot at just ahead of the bubble. ESPN's expert Bracketologist Joe Lunardi has the Cowboys as a 9-seed. How they've made it to this point is very different though. As Smart pointed out the Cowboy's were trending up going into the tournament last year. A string of late wins turned around a dismal mid season stretch. This season has been just about the opposite. A fantastic mid-season performance was thought to secure the Cowboys tournament spot, but the Pokes have put that to the test. They've lost six of the last seven games, and made today a little more interesting than most fans would have liked.
The action will kick off shortly. Here's a printable bracket to follow along at home, and let us know what you think of the selections in the comments!
