The chairman of the NCAA's selection committee says he's content with a field of 68 teams.

The NCAA tournament expanded to 68 teams in 2011, opening with four first-round games that have been played in Dayton, Ohio. Committee chairman Mike Bobinski says he's perfectly fine with that number of teams and that he personally hasn't thought about expanding the tournament.

The Xavier athletic director also says he's enjoyed the topsy-turvy season so far, one that saw four of the top five teams in the Top 25 lose last week.

Bobinski is in Indianapolis this week with the rest of the committee for its annual orientation meeting in preparation for selecting this year's tournament field.
