Kampe not a fan of new NCAA tournament configuration
In the new eight-team "First Four" format, where the tournament's lowest seeds and remaining at-large bids face one another. The tournament previously featured one first-round "play-in" game, where two teams faced off for a 16 seed in a particular region.
"There’s nothing about that I like,” he said. “It should have stayed at 65. If they were going to move it, they should have gone to 96," Kampe said.
"You’re going to push some teams down to play in first-round game every year, it’s not what a student-athlete should have to (play). A team that wins their league and gets an automatic bid should not have to play in one of those games."
