Kentucky’s Athletic Director, Mitch Barnhart, has been named the Chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee for the 2020-21 season.
“Being asked to serve in this role by my wonderful colleagues on this committee is one of the highest honors I’ve ever received,” Barnhart said. “The 10 of us carry a huge responsibility, not just with the selection, seeding and bracketing of teams each year, which draws the greatest amount of attention, but also as a group charged with working with other constituents to manage the health of the sport of college basketball. It’s an incredible challenge and one we will continue to take very seriously.”
Barnhart will serve his fourth year in a five-year term this season on the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee, which is responsible for selecting, seeding and bracketing teams for the NCAA Tournament, along with administration of the NCAA Tournament.
