REACTIONS FROM THE 2014 MOCK SELECTION

The NCAA men’s basketball staff conducts an annual mock selection process for select media members. In February, around 20 invitees from the media gathered in Indianapolis for two days to go through this process. The invitees were assigned the roles of acting as the 10-member Division I Men’s Basketball Committee and selecting, seeding and bracketing the 2014 Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.
