The ETSU men will learn its seeding and first round opponent on Sunday night, March 14, and fans are invited to the Selection Show party at the Millennium Center, located just across the street from the ETSU/MSHA Athletic Center. The event will begin at 5 p.m., with the CBS selection show slated to start at 6 p.m. 

 

On Monday, March 15, fans can celebrate once more as the Lady Bucs will learn of their first round seed and pairing. The women's Selection Show party will be held at Fanatics Restaurant located inside the Doubletree Hotel, with the party set to begin at 5:30 p.m. and the ESPN selection show scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Fanatics has made this an exclusive event for ETSU Buccaneer fans only on Monday night. 

 

At both events, ETSU players and coaches will be available for autographs, souvenir NCAA apparel will be released for the first time, and the ETSU pep band, cheerleaders, and Bucky will be in attendance.
