How to watch where Miami Hurricanes will be in NCAA Tournament

"Definitely", James said after Wednesday's loss to Oklahoma State when asked whether or not Oklahoma belonged in the NCAA Tournament. It is common for people to place bets on the teams they think will win, and many even fill out entire brackets that indicate which teams they see beating which. The Retrievers upset Vermont in the America East Conference title game Saturday 65-62 on a late 3-pointer. Then again, there's always the extra pressure of a top seed losing early on since their opponents tend to have nothing to lose, meaning just because the Wildcats will be heavy favorites doesn't mean they can afford to take this game lightly.

Yet the fourth-seeded Wildcats (27-7) went on to win the Pac-12 regular-season and tournament titles, and open NCAA play against 13-seed Buffalo (26-8) on Thursday in Boise, Idaho. UCLA is playing St. Bonaventure in the First Four in Dayton for a No. 11 seed a year after reaching the Sweet 16, while Arizona State plays Syracuse in Dayton after squeezing into the tourney.

Michigan State may not be a top seed in the NCAA tournament, but the Spartans are among the most talented teams in the nation.

Thirty-two of the teams in the field will have already clinched spots through conference tournament championships.

Game time and TV info have not been announced yet.

SURPRISE: Did we mention Syracuse got an at-large bid? The Southeastern Conference, which has made a concerted effort to transfer its success in football to the hardcourt, got 8 of its 14 teams into the field.

During Sunday's selection show on CBS, Florida State (20-11) learned it received a No. 9 seed in the West Region. Notre Dame, USC, Baylor, Louisville and Oklahoma State were all left out of the tournament.

Villanova will face the victor of LIU-Brooklyn-Radford First Four game. The bracket is made up of four, eight-team sections. The selection committee tells us all that time that everything matters, that games in November and December count.

This will be the Seminoles 16th appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Yes, their best player, Bonzie Colson, missed a large portion of the season with a foot injury before returning a couple weeks ago. Should FSU get in the dance and win this game they would potentially face No. 2 Cincinnati or No. 15 UC Irvine.
