NCAA Tournament: West Regional Preview

NCAA Tournament: West Regional Preview”

South Dakota State famously discovered Daum by chance, when the unknown prep player from Kimball, Nebraska, hit 12 three-pointers against an AAU team featuring one of the country's top recruits. You can also see all 68 teams in the tournament here. They've beaten some really good teams this year, including Xavier (twice) and Villanova.

numberFire's NCAAB Power Rankings have the Wildcats as the top team overall entering the tournament.

The victor of No. 7 Texas A&M (20-12) and No. 10 Providence (21-13) awaits in a potential second-round matchup for UNC, which was sent to Charlotte instead of Duke. We now know for sure that the No. 1 seeds are Virginia, Villanova, Kansas and Xaiver - are you going to pick a one-seed to win it all?

The most challenging region appeared to be the Midwest. Plus, I think they'll be that team that uses the First Four to springboard them to a couple of tournament wins. Oh, and it has Oklahoma freshman Trae Young, who has the potential to go on a Steph Curry-like NCAA run.

Providence's tournament resume was bolstered by a 10-8 record in BIG EAST play and a 3-3 record against top-five ranked teams. When Marquette was more of a sure bet to make the tournament in 2016-'17, players celebrated with fans in the Union Sports Annex, a campus sports bar where tourney-bound Marquette teams tend to hold viewing parties. USC had four Quadrant 1 wins while Arizona State had three and was still able to get in.

Johnson has Alabama as the No. 9 seed in the East and it advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012.

While it's an exciting time for those who landed on the inside of the bubble - like Arizona State, Texas and Syracuse - it's rather painful for those teams that fell just outside and didn't make the tournament.

The first round will begin at several regional sites on Thursday.

The Mountain West put two teams in with tournament champ San Diego State and regular-season champ Nevada earning an at-large bid. The Wildcats are a 4-seed in the South Region and will take on 13-seed Buffalo.

Three-seed Tennessee (25-8) is the SEC's highest-rated team in the NCAA Tournament and plays 14-seed Wright State (25-9) on Thursday in Dallas. But after six trips to the Sweet 16 in the last 10 years, they should finally break through for the first Final Four in program history.

The Bruins had such noteable wins against SEC Tournament victor Kentucky, a regular season win against Pac-12 Champion Arizona in Tucson and swept USC. The victor of that game will face either fifth-seeded Clemson or 12th-seeded New Mexico State in the second round on Sunday.

Auburn, which hadn't qualified for March Madness since 2003 and hadn't competed in a postseason tournament of any kind since 2009, is back in the NCAA Tournament. The tournament title was UK's sixth under John Calipari and fourth straight.
