Wolf Pack to face Texas in NCAA Tournament

Wolf Pack to face Texas in NCAA Tournament

History has shown us that when you are a No. 1 seed in the March Madness Tournament, you are guaranteed a win.

The selection committee didn't do the Cavaliers any favors on their side of the bracket. The last time the Aggies were a No. 12 seed was in 2010, when they narrowly lost to Michigan State 70-67. And then when Seton Hall was announced as the 24th at-large team, the glass-is-half-empty fans in the audience had to be convinced that the cable network had spelled their beloved school S-A-I-N-T Bonaventure and, therefore, it had been bypassed yet again.

"I told our players that everyone can play if they're in there", Virginia coach Tony Bennett said. "You just see the teams in your bracket and there's some really quality teams".

The Big East Tournament champion Wildcats (30-4) earned yet another top seed in the NCAA Tournament and will open the East Region on Thursday in Pittsburgh against the victor of the LIU Brooklyn-Radford game.

UCLA averages 81.9 points per game, good for second in the Pac-12 and 28th in the country in scoring offense. The fact remains that the Longhorns have taken care of ranked teams on several occasions this year though, so they deserve their spot. According to the Courier Journal, they're the first Power 5 conference team with an RPI ranking inside the top 40 to be kept out of the tournament.

Duke went 26-7 this season with a 13-5 ACC record.

5 seed in NCAA tournament, will face New Mexico State on Friday
North Carolina has managed to topple nine teams in the RPI top 50, and has only fallen to two teams outside of that group in N.C. Lipscomb guard Michael Buckland of High Point during a game against Purdue on December 30.

The Wildcats (22-11) finished fourth in the Big 12 this season.

Cincinnati (3-4) also has a stifling defense and won the American Athletic Conference title. We now know for sure that the No. 1 seeds are Virginia, Villanova, Kansas and Xaiver - are you going to pick a one-seed to win it all? Oh, and it has Oklahoma freshman Trae Young, who has the potential to go on a Steph Curry-like NCAA run.

"There's no team in this tournament that is more prepared than Auburn as far as everything we've gone through", Pearl said. They will play in Dallas for the first two rounds, and will head to Boston if they advance to the Sweet 16. For all his success, including seven Final Four appearances and an NCAA title, Izzo has been throttled by Mike Krzyzewski and the Blue Devils. The Jayhawks open in Wichita, Kansas, with a Thursday game against Penn.

The Shockers (25-7) have the type of roster that can make another deep March run, led by guard Landry Shamut and big man Markis McDuffie. The last time a league team received a No. 16 seed was 1989, when Princeton lost to Georgetown by a point - as close as any bottom seed has come to beating a top seed in 128 such matchups.

This would be Loyola's second win over a team from Florida this season as they beat the Gators in Gainesville way back in December. The Hokies will play as the East Region's No. 8 seed against No. 9 Alabama, with the victor likely moving on to face No. 1 Villanova.

Michigan State, as mentioned, is the third seed in the Midwest.
