NCAA Basketball: Big 12 Conference Tournament-Kansas vs Texas Tech William Purnell-USA TODAY Sports

The 2022 men’s basketball NCAA tournament will feature 68 teams, with 32 spots coming from programs who earned an automatic bid by winning their conference tournament. While almost half the field is already set, no one knows what their potential path through the bracket will look like just yet. It will all be announced on Selection Sunday at 6 p.m. ET on CBS.

Conference tournament season has already shaken up the bracket. Virginia Tech was sitting on the outside edges of the bubble just a few weeks ago before going on a Cinderella run to win the ACC tournament and clinch their spot. Texas A&M also enjoyed a shocking run through the SEC tournament as a No. 9 seed, and will play for its automatic bid just before the bracket is revealed.

While plenty of potential at-large teams can already confidently say they’re in the big dance, the matchups are often more important than the seeding. We’ll see what the entire field looks like for the 2022 men’s NCAA tournament when the bracket is unveiled. Here’s how you can watch the announcement.
