Cal State San Bernardino Director of Athletics Dr. Kevin Hatcher has been named to the NCAA Division II Men’s Basketball Committee.
The assignment is a five-year stint and includes chairing the NCAA West Region championship.
“I am honored for this opportunity and to be a part of Division II’s March Madness,” Hatcher said. “The West has represented itself very well over the last three seasons with each of its teams reaching the championship game and earning Final Four berths in the last four seasons.”
The committee is comprised of eight individuals who represent each of the tournament’s regionals.
The 2012 Elite Eight will be played in Highland Heights, Ky., and hosted by the University of Northern Kentucky.
Hatcher replaces Northwest Nazarene Director of Athletics Rich Sanders, who fulfilled his five-year commitment this past March.
Hatcher also is a member of the NCAA Softball West Regional committee.
