NCAA Men's Basketball Selection Show Details


March Madness will provide a three-week break from the troubling headlines that have consumed college basketball. Underdogs are a big part of NCAA Tournament lore and nearly every year, a few double-digit seeds make a surprising run deep into the bracket. The Friars are playing some of their best basketball of the season, getting wins over Creighton and Xavier in the Big East Tournament.

The most popular team to win the national title is Virginia at 35.4 percent. Before that, Self went to the NCAA twice with Tulsa and three times with IL. In 2005, the Bison knocked off third-seeded Kansas, 64-63.

No. 1 Kansas vs.

Gonzaga lost key players from last year's national runner-up team, but won the West Coast Conference regular-season title for the 18th time in 19 seasons and crushed BYU to win its sixth straight conference tournament title.

The Wahoos were the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament but landed in the toughest bracket. The Wildcats knocked off Rhode Island in the A-10 Tournament Championship Sunday to secure a spot in the Big Dance, and make the bubble a bit more hard to navigate. 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. The team made a run to the Sweet 16 last year, but this year's squad is strikingly different.

But that was before Davidson, which had beaten the Bonnies in the semifinals of the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament on Saturday, knocked off No. 1 seed Rhode Island on Sunday to secure an automatic bid in the NCAA Tournament. The SEC sent eight teams and the Big 12 sent seven.

The Cavaliers (31-2) have won all three of their games with the Retrievers, the last in 2005, but the identity of UMBC's head coach should bring back some memories. Ray Hagley, the team physician who was on the plane with his wife.

"I see no reason why they (NMSU) don't continue to do that". "It took 50 years for me to finally get back here, but that's a lot of what it meant to me, and then it's building back the program that he really gave his life for". Again, there hasn't been one team that's really separated itself from the pack, and another wide-open tournament awaits. That would normally translate to a 9-seed, but thanks to two Big East teams gaining #1 seeds (Villanova in the East, Xavier in the West), and having already faced both teams three times this season (3-3 record), PC was moved out of the nine-spot into the 10.

The fabled last four in were Arizona State, St. Bonaventure, Syracuse (a team that was not thought even to be on the bubble) and U.C.L.A. The Sun Devils will face Syracuse in the play-in game set for Wednesday at 6:10 p.m. (Mountain Standard Time) in Dayton, Ohio.

In September, the Justice Department arrested 10 people, including four assistant coaches from Arizona, Southern California, Auburn and Oklahoma State. With the Final Four in the Alamo City, there's something special that will be on display at the corner of Market and Alamo.

Young became the first player in NCAA history to lead the nation in scoring and assists.

No. 12 seeds are typically a popular upset pick to beat a No. 5 seed.
