Team of the Decade

Team of the Decade

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - - Belmont University men's basketball has been selected for the NCAA Tournament Team of the Decade bracket, NCAA.com announced Monday.

NCAA.com correspondent and Big Ten Network contributor Andy Katz created a 64-team field comprised of the most accomplished national programs over the past 10 years.

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.

Voting schedule:
Aug. 5: Round 1 — 4 polls per day
Aug. 15: Round 2 — 4 polls per day
Aug. 21: Sweet 16 — 2 polls per day
Aug. 27: Elite 8 — 2 polls per day
Aug. 31: Final Four — 2 polls per day
Sept. 3: National Championship
Sept. 6: Winner Announced
