Once today's conference championship games have wrapped up, 31 league champions will have secured automatic bids into this year's NCAA Tournament. That means it's on the NCAA Selection Committee to decide who the best 37 non-conference champions in the country are in order to fill out the rest of the field.
The 2013 NCAA Tournament will begin on Tuesday, March 19 with first round (or "First Four) play in Dayton, OH. The main draw gets underway two days later with second and third round play lasting from March 21-March 24. This year's Sweet 16 and Elite 8 rounds will be held between March 28-March 31 are the regional host sites of Indianapolis, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Arlington, TX. The whole thing comes to a head in Atlanta with the national semifinals on April 6 and the national championship game on April 8.
The starting gun for all this madness will be fired Sunday night at 6 p.m. ET with the NCAA Tournament Selection Show on CBS. You'll want to have a blank bracket handy in order to keep track of who's playing who, and where and when it will all be taking place.
