In previous years, teams were revealed one by one as the brackets were shown. Video was often shown of players reacting when their team was announced.

Wright State plays in the Horizon League championship on Tuesday and seeks its first NCAA tournament berth since 2007.

Dayton has heard its name announced on the selection show the last four years as an at-large team but will have to win the Atlantic 10 tournament this weekend to play in the big dance this year.
