Lack of quality wins keeps Huskers out of NCAA Tournament

Lack of quality wins keeps Huskers out of NCAA Tournament

Auburn basketball is headed to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 15 years.

The Wildcats have played LIU Brooklyn once and never have seen the Radford Highlanders in program history.

Both were entangled in the federal investigation into college basketball that cost coach Bruce Pearl his top assistant.

No. 3 Tennessee: The Volunteers' 6-6 Q1 mark is not that exciting, but it's relatively the same as the other three No. 3 seeds Michigan (6-5), Michigan State (3-4) and Texas Tech (7-7). Virginia's first game is against No. 16 UMBC. Cincinnati's about a four-hour drive from Nashville.

Kansas State earned the number nine seed in the South Region and is headed to Charlotte, North Carolina.

SECOND ROUND: Kansas, New Mexico State, Michigan State, Duke. Miller and Tony Bennett also used to coach together with Team USA.

Vols fans had been hoping their impressive season would get them assigned to Nashville, about a three-hour drive from their Knoxville campus.

Calipari added on ESPN: "I didn't know there were so many ways to say 'you got screwed again'". Rhode Island wound up getting the at-large bid that would have gone to Bonzie Colson and the Fighting Irish. If UVa wins, it will meet Creighton or Kansas State in the round of 32.

While OU finished the regular season on a four-game win streak, the 90-83 loss to TCU in the semifinals of the Big 12 Tournament was a big hit to the Sooners' resume. Head coach Tom Izzo said he thinks his team is capable of taking advantage of the rest it had. This year marked the first time since 1999 that any of those things have happened on the Plains. "But at the same time, it doesn't matter, because it's win or go home".

Notre Dame, with Bonzie Colson back and a couple wins under its belt since, was left out of the NCAA Tournament.

Best upset pick: Villanova has had a lot of trouble with No. 10 Butler, which will take its Big East toughness to its battle against No. 7 Arkansas. UNC beat Providence in the second round of the 2016 NCAA tournament in Raleigh.

Michigan State may not be a top seed in the NCAA tournament, but the Spartans are among the most talented teams in the nation. Theyw ill have a tough test against No. 6 Miami as an 11-seed, but as any avid tournament watcher knows well, there is always an 11 that advances. They were a No. 1 seed in 1999.

Purdue isn't the easiest two seed in the field, but aside from that, this is a pretty navigable road for the Wildcats.

Can he pull off a rare double and lead a college team to the Final Four?

Oh, and Auburn is the No. 4 seed after earning the top seed in the SEC 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.

"We've been good in the tournament and we've been not so good in the tournament", Self said.
