Huskies host Selection Show viewing at Bank of America Arena
March 8, 2005
The Washington Huskies men's basketball team has decided to share Selection Sunday with their fans this year. On Sunday, March 13, anyone is welcome to join the team at Bank of America Arena to watch CBS's NCAA Selection Show where the 65-team field of the NCAA Tournament is revealed.
The doors of Bank of America Arena will open at 2 p.m. and the Selection Show is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. Admission is free for the event.
Television crews from both ESPN and CBS will be in attendance and shooting live coverage during the selections. Only CBS attended a year ago when the Huskies were given a No. 8 seed.
The Huskies are 24-5 so far this season with the Pac-10 Tournament still to be played Thursday through Saturday of this week. Major news sources such as ESPN.com, CNNSI.com and CBSSportsline.com have projected that Washington could receive as high as a No. 3 seeding for the tournament which begins on March 15.
