How are the teams selected?

Arriving in New York City for the beginning of the selection process, committee members will cast hundreds of ballots and debate over the teams over the next five days. According to NCAA, three phases make up the process:

I. Select the 36 best at-large teams;
II. Seed the field of 68 teams; and
III. Place the teams into the championship bracket.

There are many rules and regulations that need to be adhered to during the process. For example, all votes are conducted by a secret ballot. In addition, members are only allowed to answer only general, factual questions about teams in the conference the individual represents;
