NCAA has format for tourney, but no details
The NCAA has settled on the format for the new 68-team men’s tournament, though the announcement isn’t scheduled until sometime next week.
Details were not disclosed. One format would slot the bottom eight teams in the tournament into the opening round and have them play for the right to move on to the round of 64. Another option would put the last eight at-large teams to make the field into the play-in games.
