The NCAA is about to expand the men's basketball tournament from 65 to 68 teams starting next year. It also has a new $10.8 billion TV deal that will show every game live.
The Division I men's basketball committee unanimously passed the proposal and it will now be reviewed by the Board of Directors on April 29.
The NCAA also said it reached a new, 14-year agreement with CBS Sports and Turner Broadcasting System Inc. that is worth more than $10.8 billion. The deal, which runs from 2011 through 2024, will show every game live across four national networks for the first time.
