OU basketball: A final look at Oklahoma's NCAA Tournament hopes


USA Today: South Bracket playing in Atlanta, FSU No. 10 seed taking on No. 7 Texas A&M. The region also includes North Carolina, Xavier, Gonzaga and Houston. How about Wichita State as a No. 10 seed despite a 30-4 record and a top-10 ranking by Ken Pomeroy's advanced statistics? UCLA has the cache, but St. Bonaventure might have the better team.

Only two Longhorns score in double figures, but the defensive effort in crunch time was enough to preserve the win.

The Midwest's No. 16 seed is Penn (24-8), which won the Ivy League by defeating Harvard, 68-65, on Sunday.

"I feel bad for our group of seniors", UNC Asheville coach Nick McDevitt said after his team was upset last week in the Big South semifinals. "You just see the teams in your bracket and there are some real quality teams". Now the Cavaliers face a new challenge: trying to earn a spot in their first Final Four in more than three decades as the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Cowboys became the first team since Iowa State in 2000-01 to win two regular-season games against the Jayhawks, including an 82-64 romp at Allen Fieldhouse on March 3.




Will tournament seeding be as egregious as previous year? That doesn't even look like an NIT team. Villanova has excellent guard play and one of the best coaches in the country in Wright. I know the analytics and early wins have them in, but in no way is that real-life NCAA Tournament team. With a win, it would advance to play whichever team emerges from the 8-9 matchup between Creighton and Kansas State. But Davidson's only hope was to win the conference tournament - and Stephen Curry's alma mater did just that.

To finish the bracket, the NCAA uses an application program to place teams in the proper regions based on mileage from campus, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported. St. Mary's was left out despite going 28-5 and beating Gonzaga because, Rasmussen said, it did not have enough quality wins, even as he acknowledged that it is structurally hard for teams outside basketball's six power conferences to schedule top nonleague competition.

Auburn, which shared the SEC regular season championship, is back in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2003.

Former Western Dubuque standouts Megan Maahs and Rose Simon-Ressler combined to score seven points for the Panthers (19-12), who play in-state rival Drake (25-7) in today's championship game. Brunson gets excellent support from Mikal Bridges, who is averaging 18.0 points and collecting 5.4 rebounds per night, and is shooting 52.1 percent. The Spartans finished the regular season with a 29-4 overall record, winning the Big Ten regular season and reaching the quarterfinal before losing to MI in the conference tourney. The NCAAs should be expanded to at least 96 teams - still a relative smidgen out of more than 350 Division I schools.
