Belmont, one of only six programs selected outside of the power conferences (traditional multi-bid leagues), drew four-time National Champion UConn in the opening round.
Just like March Madness, the winner will be decided after a six-round, single-elimination tournament. Voting will be conducted on the @MarchMadness Twitter account and March Madness Instagram & March Madness Facebook Stories using 2-day polls beginning Monday, Aug. 5. The Final Four and national championship polls will be extended to three days. The team with the most fan votes in each poll will advance to the next round. Those results will serve as a tiebreaker if the Twitter results are tied.
Each squad in the bracket will be represented by an all-star collection of players from this decade.
Who should be on the @BelmontMBB 5-man all-star team for the @marchmadness 'Team of the Decade' bracket! Stay tuned for fan voting on Belmont matchup with @UConnMBB https://t.co/vujqnKGyAm @TheAndyKatz #itsbruintime pic.twitter.com/otrXBGgypQ— Belmont Basketball (@BelmontMBB) August 6, 2019
