The NCAA women's basketball Selection Show was suddenly moved up by two hours on Monday, after what appeared to be the women's bracket was aired on ESPN.

The reveal was reported by Deadspin.

Shortly after, the NCAA announced on Twitter that the Selection Show, for which "watch parties" are scheduled around the country, would be moved up by two hours from 7 p.m. to 5 p.m. on ESPN2.

The move is drawing an onslaught of backlash on social media, as many teams were planning to watch the Selection Show together, including the UB Bulls women's team. The Bulls won the MAC championship over the weekend.
