Alabama gets a No. 9 seed, will face Virginia Tech
Louisville lost five of its last seven games heading into Selection Sunday. Who's in? Who's out?
Because daylight saving time kicks in over the weekend, some of us will lose three hours on Sunday.
About the show. It's set for 6 p.m., on TBS. (Turner, TBS' parent company, and CBS share the rights to the tournament.) Turner designed a new studio on its Atlanta campus for the show, which will have a live audience this year - one of a number of significant changes to the show's format in the wake of some recent, high-profile blunders. But there's no better time than now to print off a blank bracket so you can fill in the blanks as they get revealed on Sunday. But four others will be sweating it out when the 68-team field is announced.
Furthering the intrigue, the debut of reconfigured team sheets. Quadrant 3 and Quadrant 4 games continue along this trend.
The committee has access to team sheets with RPI information and a breakdown of results separated into four quadrants. Also in Idaho are defending national runner-up Gonzaga, which would have a home-court advantage of sorts in a second-round matchup against either Ohio State or South Dakota State.
"Clearly the Bonzie Colson situation is unique from my five years on the committee", Rasmussen said Wednesday on a media call. Oklahoma State could be a true exception and, perhaps, one that removes RPI, a metric that has its fair share of critics, from team sheets in the future.
No. 16 Auburn basketball's SEC Tournament ended in the quarterfinals with a blowout loss to Alabama in the quarterfinals. Its best win is over Western Kentucky.
The Sun Devils (20-11) tied for eighth in the Pacific 12 Conference at 8-10. But still, UM has six quadrant 1 victories.
Preview: UCLA (21-11) was on the bubble, but was ultimately one of the last four teams to make the field. "I don't think we're playing our best ball", Izzo said Friday on WBBL-FM (107.3) in Grand Rapids (h/t Chris Solari of the Detroit Free Press). It may have an impact on seeding.
"I don't think we're on that bubble, baby!"
Donte DiVincenzo has been a clutch performer throughout his career, and he is scoring 13.1 points per game.
The record for such inclusions is three, in 1991 with Virginia, Villanova and Georgia Tech. While it's almost impossible all will receive at-large bids, several teams such as Oklahoma State, Texas and Oklahoma are on the bubble. Arizona, a No. 4 seed in the South, has been roiled by a report that wiretaps caught coach Sean Miller discussing a $100,000 payment to freshman Deandre Ayton. I believe Duke and UNC are locks, but it will be between Cincinnati (if they beat Houston), Purdue, Michigan, and Arizona for the other two #2 seeds. Most notably, Oklahoma (18-13) dropped from a four-seed to a No. 10 - the product of losing eight of its final 10 games.
