While some teams have already punched their tickets to the NCAA Tournament, others will be waiting to find out if they’ll be one of the 68 teams competing in this year’s tournament.

This season, committees for the NCAA men’s and women’s basketball tournaments will unveil the teams who will compete for a national championship on March 13 — Selection Sunday. 

Unlike years past, the men’s and women’s brackets will be filled out by the committees on Sunday. Previously, the women’s tournament field would be unveiled one day after the men’s tournament field was announced. 

This season, the men’s Final Four will take place in New Orleans at the Caesars Superdome. The women’s Final Four will happen in Minneapolis at the Target Center. 

Here's what to know if you're wanting to watch either the men's or women's Selection Sunday shows.
