Today is practically a national holiday for college basketball fans. Selection Sunday is here, the day when the 68-field team will be announced for the 2017 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. For many teams, it will be a sure thing and today will be a mere formality as the only question is where they’ll end up. For Gamecoks fans, things might be a little bit more dicey, and they will be nervous up until the moment Greg Gumbel says the words “South Carolina”. (Fortunately, everybody has them in!)
This is your Selection Sunday open thread. Talk about the matchups you expect to see, who’s in, who’s out, and who deserves to be in/out. Keep it here on Garnet and Black Attack as we’ll provide full coverage of the evening, including a full breakdown of the Gamecocks’ matchup (if they get in, as expected) as well as a look at the sixteen teams in the region and who might stand the best chance of advancing to the Final Four (and maybe win it all!).
