Tournament schedule and location 2023

Today is Selection Sunday. We will get to see which teams get what seeds and who they play. The seeding process is important in the fact that you will know which team your own favorite team be facing in round one. Not only that but you will see the pool of teams they could possibly face if they are lucky enough to move on past round one.

The tournament will include 68 teams and will do so with help of a single play-in game. There is little doubt that the NCAA basketball tournament is the fairest championship series of them all. It gives 69 teams a chance to compete for it all.


Teams referred to as “Cinderella” teams are ones which play above and beyond expectations, making it much further than expected.  Here is a brief list of modern Cinderella teams:

  • 2010-11 VCU Rams
  • 1978-79 Penn Quakers
  • 2021-22 Saint Peter’s Peacocks
  • 2007-08 Davidson Wildcats
  • 1998-99 Gonzaga Bulldogs. Record: 28-7
  • 1989-90 Loyola Marymount Lions. Record: 26-6
  • 2013-14 Dayton Flyers. Record: 26-11
  • 2001-02 Kent State Golden Flashes. Record: 30-6

These are programs that do not have a lot of money and/or a consistent history of success. They are often from small conferences and are typically unrecognized by your average sports fan. The St. Peter’s Peacocks, for example. That team made it to the Final Four last year before they were beaten by power-house Duke Blue Devils.
