WSU, KU & K-State all make NCAA Tournament

WSU, KU & K-State all make NCAA Tournament

Before the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament, they won 12 straight games and are now 25-7 on the season.

Let's start with the Aggies.

One of the biggest surprises was USC as they had a 34 RPI. Basically, they're not very good at scoring the ball, a problem that can be pointed back to lackluster guard play.

Then there's the three-point dependency.

Nevada's leading scorer this year is Caleb Martin with 19.1 PPG and 5.3 RPG. He's played every minute of five of UCLA's last six games, including an overtime loss to Arizona in the Pac-12 semifinals. Those are the things that define this Providence team while Texas A&M has lacked those traits.

"I told our players that everyone can play if they're in there", Bennett said in a teleconference Sunday after the pairings were released.

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. The Bonnies are an extremely balanced team, with a top 100 offensive (59) and defensive (94) efficiency.




According to the official NCAA.com website, all of the hoops madness will officially get underway Tuesday evening from Dayton, Ohio with the First Four play in games. Instead, let's pick a team with clear National Basketball Association talent, a Hall of Fame coach and balance on both ends of the court. They've been able to find their way out of tough spots over the last month but won't be able to against a team as efficient as Loyola.

During this losing skid, the Buckeyes have been exposed a little bit. It used to be that the underdogs in the NCAA tournament would try to muck up the game and draw out possessions to improve their odds of beating more talented opponents.

"Our teams challenged themselves out of conference, and we've been doing that, but this year we've had a level of success in November and December that we hoped to see", Sankey said, "and one of my comments two years ago about our small number of teams was not in comparison to anyone else, but meeting our own expectations". The only previous time was in 2000 when the Wildcats played in Cleveland, defeating St. Bonaventure 85-80 in overtime in the first round before falling to fourth-seeded Syracuse in the second round, 52-50. Who will be this year's Cinderella team? The Jackrabbits also don't beat themselves as they lead the country in turnover percentage.

SECOND ROUND: Kansas, New Mexico State, Michigan State, Duke. The Wildcats (24-10) have won seven of their last eight games entering the NCAA Tournament, with four of those seven wins coming against teams that were ranked or receiving votes in the national listings. The quality of competition.

They also match up perfectly with Clemson. The 10th-seeded Bulldogs defeated Villanova this season and lost to the Boilermakers in December. The Musketeers won 28 games.

Some of the biggest names in college basketball are in the region.
