The 68-team NCAA Tournament field will officially be unveiled on Sunday night on CBS/Turner Sports’ “Selection Show.”
We’ve got an elimination game taking place today.
It’s not an official one, of course, but according to all of the NCAA Tournament bracket projections, it basically is.
Ohio State is currently the last team in the field, according to ESPN bracketologist Joe Lunardi.
Indiana is currently the first team out of the field, according to the same projection.
The Buckeyes and the Hoosiers are set to meet in the Big Ten Tournament this afternoon. The winner could secure an NCAA Tournament berth. The loser is almost certainly not making it in.
Joe Lunardi says the winner of the Ohio State vs. Indiana goes back into the tournament in his projections.

Saint Mary's has knocked Ohio State out of Joe Lunardi's bracket. Buckeyes are first team out, Indiana second. Jerry Palm has OSU as an 11 seed. Not even one of the last four in.
