There won't be much of a local feel to the NCAA Selection Show on Sunday since no team from the state of Georgia will be capturing a bid to the tournament. Both Georgia and Georgia Tech suffered their way through tough seasons. The Yellow Jackets were knocked out of the first round of the ACC Tournament by Miami, and Georgia was bounced in the second round of the SEC Tournament.
Georgia State and Mercer had solid seasons in their respective conferences, and Georgia Southern improved over last season. Kennesaw State reminded Georgia and Georgia Tech fans in the state that yes things could be much worse. The state's best chance for a tournament team looked like it would be Savannah State, who earned the top seed in the MEAC Tournament but promptly was upset by eight seeded Hampton in the second round of the tournament.
However, Atlanta does get to host a regional, and the SEC and ACC could be represented by almost a dozen combined teams, according to Saturday's bracketology.
