There are 68 teams in the land of college basketball. All of these teams are either hoping to make it into March Madness or are patiently waiting for their time to shine. For each game, there are three people striving to do their best and get their own selections. There are 96 NCAA referees all waiting for the same thing those 68 teams are waiting for.
I, like any other college basketball fan, love making out brackets. I will even make one out before Selection Sunday. I decided to have a little fun and select the tournament officials. Since there are more teams and games this year, I raised the number of officials from 96 to 99. The intent is that three brand new tournament officials would officiate in the First Four games to give them experience to work from in future years.
In the last slide I will have already selected the Championship officials.
