Securities and Exchange Commission Commissioner Greg Sankey is open to major changes to March Madness

He is probably the most influential person in college athletics, said Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey On Thursday he wants to take a “fresh look” at the NCAA men’s basketball tournament — perhaps with an eye on expanding the existing 68-team stadium.

Sankey cautions that he is “not ready to make headlines there yet.” But he’s also open to talks about a big dance that doesn’t rule out small conference champions with the potential for more teams to be included.

For example, he mentions the 2022 College World Series baseball championship, which was won by SEC member Mississippi—the last team in the 64-team field.
