The chairman of the Division I men's basketball committee believes changes made last August to the way teams are bracketed in the NCAA tournament will result in a fairer March Madness.
Ron Wellman also said Wednesday that there have been no discussions of expanding the field beyond 68 teams, and that officiating emphases put in place in the regular season to create greater movement will carry over to the NCAA tournament.
The new bracketing rules should be apparent to most college basketball fans.
Previously, the selection committee tried to keep schools from playing rematches before the regional finals, sometimes moving teams multiple seed lines in the process. Wellman said relaxing that policy allows the committee to honor their seeding, creating a fairer overall bracket.
