Selection Sunday is just 5 weeks away

Five weeks until Selection Sunday. Twenty-five more days in college basketball's regular season. The season is winding down, and that means constant bubble talk and discussions about seeding.

This NCAA Tournament is setting up to be a good one. Just ask the man who's running the show.

"We have had six No. 1 teams already. It is deeper at the top," Oklahoma athletic director and Selection Committee chairman Joe Castiglione said Wednesday. "How exciting and unpredictable March is setting up to be."
