Deep sleepers: Who could wreck brackets in March?

Woody Durham longtime voice of the Tar Heels dies at 76

The selection committee didn't do the Cavaliers any favors on their side of the bracket.

Kansas State earned the number nine seed in the South Region and is headed to Charlotte, North Carolina. 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. Duke is the third-best team by the site's figures, with Division I's third-best offense and seventh-best defense. You can also see all 68 teams in the tournament here.

The Villanova Wildcats earned the top seed in the East Region for the NCAA Tournament.

The Tigers are led in scoring by Reed with a 15.9 average. The team was 7-25 the year before he took over. 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. He said perception, not results, was holding OSU's postseason outlook back; in October, the Cowboys were picked to finish last in the Big 12. That's it. Now, about 40 percent of No. 1 seeds do reach the Final Four, so you shouldn't discount them altogether.

If they win that - and barring a miraculous upset by #16 UMBC - K-State will have to face the Tournament's No. 1 overall seed, the Virginia Cavaliers. Oh, and it has Oklahoma freshman Trae Young, who has the potential to go on a Steph Curry-like NCAA run.

The NCAA will announce game time and announces later in the week. "He can travel, he can practice, but he won't play". This is Missouri's 27th appearance in the NCAA Tournament , though their 1994 appearance was vacated.

These are two teams trending in completely opposite directions as Texas A&M is only 9-11 overall since December 30 while Providence was only a few seconds away from winning the Big East Tournament. "I think we're much better prepared for the NCAA Tournament than we were a month ago, and these two games will help us, even though we lost (Friday night) and could have played better". Michigan State, the Big Ten regular-season champ, meets Bucknell on Friday in Detroit.

Johnson has Alabama as the No. 9 seed in the East and it advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012. Virginia has never won the NCAA Tournament and its last Final Four appearance was in 1984.

6 seed and on Thursday in Dallas will play the victor of an opening round game between No. 11 seed St. Bonaventure and No. 11 seed UCLA. Auburn plays 13-seed Charleston (26-7) in San Diego on Friday. It marks the Aggies second NCAA Tournament trip in six years under Billy Kennedy.

Unlike previous year, the team made a decision to watch the selection show privately.

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.
