NCAA Tournament Texas Southern vs. North Carolina Central

NCAA Tournament Texas Southern vs. North Carolina Central

Saturday's matchup with the Cowgirls represents the first time in program history that Syracuse has played Oklahoma State. Frank Howard and Oshae Brissett were the other two Orange players to average double digits per game.

The squad went on to win 21 games and earned it's fifth straight NCAA Tournament appearance, which ties the school's current record. In this photo, the Orange women played their home finale against Boston College on February 25 in a game that Syracuse won, 69-63.

The Bulls, who are 26-8 this season, feature a high-powered offense that scores 84.8 points per game, good for eighth overall in the nation. Defensively, Arizona basketball yields 71.2 points per game against the opposing teams.

The first game on Wednesday night pits North Carolina Central, winners of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Tournament, and Southwestern Athletic Conference Tournament champion Texas Southern, which comes in as the only First Four team with a losing record (15-19). Davis, a 6-9, 240-pound Kent State transfer who led the MEAC in field-goal percentage (66.7) and fourth in rebounding, proved to be a terror during the final three games of the conference, averaging 15 points and 13.3 boards.

How they make a run: Holder channels his unstoppable play from early in the season and shoots lights-out from the perimeter to extend his career by one or two games.

March Madness point spread: This game opened as a pick 'em; the total is at 142.5, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. Syracuse has been pretty average most of the season. They scored an average of 91 points in the seven victories. Texas Southern was here in 2014. MA transfer Donte Clark (18.6 points) erupted for 41 points during one of Jefferson's absences and is averaging 23.6 points over the last five contests. "This is the first time we have the opportunity to go to the NCAA Tournament with good players at every position; we have a legitimate point guard, we have a legitimate big guy (and) a legitimate scorer". "We felt we were deserving of a place in the tournament, but others who actually make the decision didn't feel the same". Their best non-conference win by far was a three point win at Syracuse, another 11 seed in the tournament. Sometimes an FBI investigation can totally tear a team apart and send them in the wrong direction, but I believe it is sending this team in the complete opposite direction.

The Wildcats (27-7) won the Pac-12 Championship for the second straight year and are now ranked 15th in the country. "To be honest, a lot of people gave up on this team".

North Carolina Central returns to Dayton for the second consecutive year.
