Selection Sunday, the two most anticipated words  of March to all sports fans.

Before that fun can start, 32 NCAA Division I conferences must hold their tournaments over a nine-day span, starting with the Ohio Valley Conference (Evansville, Indiana on Saturday, March 9 at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN2) and ending with the Big Ten Conference(Chicago, Illinois on Sunday, March 17.) to decide the automatic bids to the main event.

The NCAA Tournament begins with 68 teams, and with only 32 automatic bids, the other 36 teams are filled with at-large bids. An at-large is a bid or berth in a sporting tournament granted by invitation, not right. These teams are chosen by schedule toughness, conference, and other factors. The teams are then split up into groups of 16 and makeup 4 regions, South, East, Midwest, West.
