DENTON (3/8/07) - North Texas Athletics will be hosting a Selection Show Sunday watching party at the Athletics Center at 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 11, with the NCAA Tournament Selection Show starting at 5 pm on CBS.  Mean Green head coach Johnny Jones and the North Texas basketball team will be there and the Mean Green has been selected as one of the reaction schools by CBS sports. So when North Texas' name is called on Sunday, CBS Sports will have a live shot of Coach Jones, the team and fans at the watching party for the national viewing audience to see.  Students, alumni and fans are invited to attend.

The North Texas men's basketball team is NCAA Tournament bound and you can join them. The location, date and time of the first round game is TBD, and will be announced on Sunday, March 11th.  A list of the eight possible first round sites are detailed below.
