Next Sun around 3:30 EDT on the crawl on the bottom of the screen on the ESPN networks. Only the host sites will be announced that way, not the national seeds or the rest of the field.

I thought they announced hosts before conference tournaments. Something about not wanting a hot streak in your conference tournament to work someone into a spot, but to make it the entire season.

Nope, the regional host sites are officially announced next Sun at 3:30 p.m. EDT on the crawl at the bottom of the screen. Most schools are told a week ahead of time that they will be hosting if they are dead cinch locks like the big three in the SEC, UVa, UNC, Texas, etc. Some schools are told that they could be hosting and they should begin preparations if they are chosen to host a regional, which is the situation Southern Miss is in.

In barring a collapse in Conf Tourneys: TCU, Southern Miss

Fighting for last spot: Oklahoma, Clemson, Stetson, (am I missing anyone?)

Josh, out with Stetson and in with Arkansas and that is probably the list of three teams fighting for the last hosting spot.

I tend to agree, but if there is a chance, I still think the committee will try to 'reward' Stetson much like they did UConn last year. but I would think Arkansas is right there about even with Stetson even though Conf record wasn't all that much 'to write home about' so to speak.

Stetson's in Florida, right? I know it's a long way geographically, but any way they award Stetson a regional #1 seed, but have Arkansas host it? I know they've done that in the past - not sure about that far geographically though.

Won't happen. Stetson has great facilities to host. If they are a #1, they'll be at home.
