Virginia Tops NCAA Bracket in a Season Marked by Scandal

No. 5 Clemson vs. No. 12 New Mexico State: Game Time, Channel, Betting Line, Prediction

Winning the way they did against Providence in overtime during the Big East tournament championship shows how tough this Villanova team can be, and as long as guys like Mikal Bridges and Jalen Brunson are on top of their games, Villanova is going to be a very unsafe team to compete against in the East Region.

But after that, Virginia faces possible matchups with fourth-seeded Arizona or fifth-seeded Kentucky, the most daunting teams on those seed lines in the tournament.

The Wildcats - who lost to eventual champion North Carolina on a last-second shot in last year's Elite Eight - face 12-seed Davidson (21-11) in Boise on Thursday. The Aggies started hot but cooled in January as they battled injuries before winning seven of 10 games to finish the regular season. "But I think Michigan State is going to win that region". This is the program's first appearance since 2012. You prepare well, you try to improve and you play to win. "We have never been to Wichita and look forward to doing that". "You play for the national championship when you are in this tournament and you have to win six games to win it".

Third-seeded MI (28-7), victor of 10 straight games, is the likely Sweet Sixteen matchup in what would be a rematch of a game Carolina won in Chapel Hill on November 29.

It's disappointing to not see Big Red participating in this year's tournament and they've now been excluded from dancing for four straight years.

The NCAA Selection Committee chairman explained the reasoning behind the Sooners being named a No. 10 seed for the tournament after the bids were announced Sunday.

Nebraska won 22 games and went 13-5 in Big Ten, but was 1-6 against quadrant-1 teams. They had some absolutely great wins.

"They had enough on their resume to get in", Rasmussen said. For bubble teams such as Arizona State, Louisville, Syracuse, Baylor, Marquette and St. Mary's, that's a problem.

Michigan State won the Big Ten regular-season title, but could not sustain that roll in the Big Ten conference tournament as the Spartans lost to the Michigan Wolverines in the semifinal round.

Texas A&M Basketball is two seasons removed from their most recent NCAA Tournament berth in 2015. The Tigers earned a No. 4 seed after playing all season without top post players Danjel Purifoy and Austin Wiley. Both games will take place in Dayton, Ohio and be aired on TruTV. At one point this team found themselves ranked inside the Top 5, but then came a streak of five consecutive losses to begin SEC play. "All the adversity we've gone through, all the challenges we've gone through, the quality of the competition - this team's prepared".

The last time a TCU basketball team made it to March Madness was 1998.

While certain players will looking to make individual adjustments before the Friday game, what matters most is how it all comes together in San Diego. Arizona State defeated UCLA 88-79.
