TCU 1 Of 7 Big 12 Teams Heading To NCAA Tournament

Alabama basketball earns NCAA Tournament berth as No. 9 seed

Duke is the third-best team by the site's figures, with Division I's third-best offense and seventh-best defense.

Kentucky coach John Calipari said Sunday that he loved the SEC getting eight teams into the tournament, proof the league finally is past the point of a loss costing programs dearly.

The Big East's regular-season champ suffered an early conference tournament exit to Providence but still have the credentials.

It seems like every year there are at least five or six schools under serious consideration for a No. 1 seed. The Sun Devils beat two possible No. 1 seeds, winning at Kansas - a herculean task for a non-conference opponent - and beat Xavier on a neutral court, and they also topped Kansas State and St. John's, before injuries derailed the Johnnies.

Kansas State is going dancing.

The Conference championships will determine the 32 teams that earn automatic bids to the "Big Dance" but the remaining 36 teams will be chosen via "at-large" bids.

But, first things first, Williams will try to improve to 28-0 in the opening round of the NCAA tournament with a matchup against the Bisons, the Atlantic Sun champions, on Friday at Spectrum Center in Charlotte. They are in the 68-team field for the second straight year. Villanova, under Coach Jay Wright, is displaying consistent excellence.

Tournament play will begin on Tuesday and Wednesday with play-in games in Dayton. Dylan Osetkowski led the way with 20 points and three steals, while Jase Febres added 12 points and Jericho Sims just missed a double-double with eight points and 15 boards.

What's your prediction for Ohio State?

For the first time, the basketball committee released preliminary rankings in February.

'NOVA NO. 1: Villanova (30-4) is the No. 1 seed in the East Region, a familiar position for the Wildcats.

Challenged about Oklahoma's seed by TBS's Charles Barkley, Rasmussen said, "The games in November count the same as the games in February". It also went 5-5 in quadrant 2 games, 7-2 in quadrant 3 games and 5-0 in quadrant 4 competition. But the Boilermakers were upset in the Bahamas and the anticipated game may come instead with a Final Four berth at stake.

The Final Four and National Championship will be played on March 31 and April 2 at the Alamodome in San Antonio. They just haven't let more teams in.
