Kentucky Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart has been named as a member of the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Committee.
The committee is the body that annually selects the 68-team NCAA Tournament field. Barnhart joins the 10-member committee with a five-year appointment. School and conference administrators are nominated by their conference and represent a cross-section of the Division I membership.
“The NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Committee is tasked with setting the field for one of the greatest events in all of sports and I am eager to contribute to that process,” said Barnhart. “I respect my new fellow committee members a great deal and look forward to working with them, as well as (NCAA vice president of men’s basketball championships) Dan Gavitt.”
