NEW YORK, NY -

A media luncheon was held Tuesday in New York for members of the CBS and Turner sports teams.

This is the fourth year in a 14-year-deal of broadcasting the tournament between the networks. This year will be a little different, though.

For the first time, TBS will broadcast the national semi-final games on April 5th. And then right here on KWCH 12 you can see the national championship game on Monday, April 7th.

CBS sports analyst Doug Gottlieb spoke about the tournament, and in particular Wichita State being a number one seed.

A warning...his comments may not make shockers fans very happy.

"If you actually go by how resumes are supposed to be, they probably shouldn't be in the discussion, they've beaten three tournament teams all year," Gottleib said. "They haven't lost. It's like Stephen F. Austin who's 29-2, they're not a number one seed--they're not a 2, 3, or 4 seed. They might not even get in if they don't win the Southland conference tournament."

Gottlieb does go on to say that he thinks Wichita State will end up getting a one seed because of public sentiment.

We'll find out for sure come this Sunday. The 68-team field will be unveiled starting at 5 p.m. on Channel 12. And later that night we'll have a special selection Sunday edition of Sports Sunday after Eyewitness News at 10.
