A look inside the NCAA tournament selection committee

9 03 2010

College basketball fans who wonder how the NCAA tournament is selected and seeded don’t always get to hear from the people who make those decisions. Fortunately, I was given the opportunity to speak with one of the people in charge for a SLAMonline interview.

Doug Fullerton, who is the commissioner of the Big Sky Conference, was named last spring to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Committee, which counts the selection and seeding of the March tournament among its responsibilities.

Fullerton officially started his committee role last fall and will help make the decisions this Selection Sunday for the first time. Read the interview to discover his views of the committee’s responsibilities, what he looks for in teams, his thoughts on the tournament expanding to 96 teams and a big announcement in regards to college basketball officiating.
