We're a couple of hours away from the NCAA Tournament's Selection Show.

One team everyone assumes is safely into the 68-team field is St. Bonaventure. But are they, really?

The Bonnies are 25-7 and finished second in the A-10. They beat Syracuse and Maryland in the non-conference .

ESPN's latest NCAA Tournament projection has St. Bonaventure as a No. 11 seed. They're the fifth-to-last team to make it in, per Joe Lunardi.

How safe is St. Bonaventure, though?

Stewart Mandel says it's possible they could miss it.

Every year, there seems to be one or two big surprises from the selection committee. Maybe this year, it'll be St. Bonaventure.

The Selection Show is set to begin in less than six hours.

It'll air at 6 p.m. E.T. This year's show is on TBS.
