Orange Fizz


Ultimate Selection Sunday Viewing Guide

Selection Sunday is fast-approaching, and it seems like every Syracuse fan will have their eyes glued to the TV, waiting to discover the Orange’s fate.

Maybe SU will be in the First Four. Maybe the Orange won’t make it at all. Either way, here’s what you need to know for Selection Sunday.

Date: March 14

Time: 6:00 p.m. EST


But before you tune in on one of the best days of the year, here are a few things to know.

Stay off Twitter

Every year the full bracket is leaked during or even before the show. Trust us, it takes the fun and drama away from one of the most exciting nights of the year.

COVID-19 actually makes the tournament more fair

Typically the committee accounts for geography in its seeding. This means the top seeds are placed in regions closest to their campuses. With all games played in the state of Indiana this year, that is not a concern. Plus, limited fans means no significant home crowd advantage. So, this should alleviate a lot of the stress and thought from the audience watching at home biting their nails.

Don’t be late

It sounds simple, but the bracket reveal really doesn’t take long. You might miss a region if you blink, so clear your calendar.

Watch it alone

Alright, this is the only “sporting event” all year that is best without your friends or family members. Because once the field is released, you will want to start the nearly week-long process of over-tinkering with your bracket. The last thing anyone wants is to give away their Cinderella.

If you follow these guidelines, your Selection Sunday will go as smoothly as possible. Then there’s also the wrinkle of Syracuse getting in, although experts seem to be confident that’s the case. So, fingers crossed.
