ESPN's Bilas Continues To Complain About Tourney Expansion To 68 Teams
Published March 16, 2011
PICK YOUR POISON: SPORTING NEWS’ Mike DeCourcy writes last night’s Clemson-UAB first-round NCAA matchup was a “dreary game,” but it was the “best possible advertisement … for expansion to a 68-team NCAA Tournament field.” DeCourcy: “Your choices were not between a 65-team bracket and 68 teams. Your choices were between 68 teams and 96. Those were the options.” If the tournament consisted of 96 teams, “imagine what this week would have been like” (SPORTINGNEWS.com, 3/16).
