It's the end of this part of the journey. We'll be curious as to whether Kentucky can repeat Wichita State's feat from last year and wonder whether it's becoming too easy to go undefeated. We'll be watching to see if Wisconsin can make the selection committee's job just that much more difficult. We'll be wondering which of the two GSUs gets to claim the Sun Belt title. We'll be keeping a close eye on Birmingham to see if Connecticut's going to ruin yet another bubble team's dream. And then there's the Atlantic 10 final, which doesn't matter because both VCU and Dayton are in anyway.

In addition to all of that, there's the small matter of the bracket reveal. Of course, we don't actually care about that, since K-State went above and beyond the call of duty this year to ensure that their streak of NCAA appearances would come to an end. Still, being junkies and all, you'll probably still want to watch.

NCAA Tournament Selection Show

When: Sunday, March 15 at 5:00 p.m. CT.

Where: Your local CBS affiliate, unless you live in some bizarre backwater where Wheel of Fortune is more important.

Who: Greg Gumbel, Clack Kellogg, Seth Davis, and Doug Gottlieb live from New York, with NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Committee chairman Scott Barnes joining from Indianapolis, and Grant Hill and Bill Raftery checking in from Chicago.

Why: $$$$$.

Later in the evening, we'll post the full bracket, and we'll have another thread covering the selections for the consolation tournaments. Will K-State stumble into some form of post-season activity? We strongly, strongly doubt it, but if so we'll have all the information as soon as possible.
