Selection Sunday Live Thread: UVA hopes for NCAA Tournament Bid

USA TODAY Sports

The Selection Committee announces the bracket for the 2013 NCAA Championship at 6 PM on CBS. We'll be watching

Hey everyone!

By now, we all know the deal. UVA went 11-7 in conference play and owns wins at Wisconsin, and over UNC, NC State, Duke, and Tennessee. We also own plenty of...questionable losses (@GMU, Delaware, ODU, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Clemson, Boston College, namely). Various projections have the Hoos sitting just outside the bubble (ESPN's Joe Lunardi has UVA as the second team out)...but stranger things have happened than what Coach Tony Bennett called "the most interesting bubble team in the world" finding its way into the NCAA field.

Use this thread to celebrate a miraculous second straight NCAA berth, mourn together if we experience a near miss, and then get re-excited for the NIT selection show later on at 9PM.

Let's go Hoos!

Update (6:10 PM): Middle Tennessee State is in. This was one of the other teams hanging right on the edge with us, and seeing them in the bracket, taking on St. Mary's in the first at-large play-in game is a bad sign for the Hoos,
