A new format this year for Selection Sunday.

Heads up, guys. CBS has gone and doubled their Selection Sunday coverage to two full hours this year. Historically the program ran from 6-7pm ET, but now will start 30 minutes earlier at 5:30pm ET. I'd expect the brackets to drop within the first hour, with the second hour containing mostly analysis and guests joining the show.

In addition to TV coverage, the NCAA is streaming the show both online and on mobile apps - so even if you're away from your home this evening you can watch. The Selection Show will only reveal the brackets - we'll know where and who Villanova is playing next week but game times will likely not be released until very late on Sunday or even Monday morning as they have in the past.

If you're on campus at Villanova, the school is hosting a watch party in the Connelly Room with the team/coaches where they will broadcast the show on the big screen.
