We like to say that the first Thursday and Friday of the NCAA Tournament are the best days of the year in sports. But for many college basketball fans, Selection Sunday is the most nerve-wracking.

It won't be as bad around here as it could be, because we know that Temple, Villanova and Lehigh are all safely in the field. But now we find out which seeds those teams will get, as well as where they'll play this week and next.

There's also the not-so-small matter of the other 62 teams in the field. How far our local programs will advance depends as much on the teams they face as their own talent.

Now the waiting is over. It's time for this year's NCAA Tournament bracket to be unveiled.
