The Musketeers will likely face the victor of No. 8 seed Missouri and No. 9 seed Florida State as the Tigers will be a team to watch thanks to the status of star freshman Michael Porter Jr.

"The tournament is so unique", coach Chris Mack said Sunday.

The fabled last four in were Arizona State, St. Bonaventure, Syracuse (a team that was not thought even to be on the bubble) and U.C.L.A. Foster began playing for the Bluejays in the 2017 season. Arizona, a No. 4 seed in the South, has been roiled by a report that wiretaps caught coach Sean Miller discussing a $100,000 payment to freshman Deandre Ayton. The last team to lose only one ACC game in a season was Maryland in 2002, and the Terps won the national championship that year.

Kansas coach Bill Self is optimistic that big man Udoka Azubuike will be available when the top-seeded Jayhawks open the NCAA Tournament against No. 16 seed Penn on Thursday. The victor will play again Saturday against third-seeded Tennessee or 14th-seeded Wright State.

Sumner went on to the National Basketball Association and athletic guard Trevon Blueitt considered leaving before deciding to stay in Cincinnati for another season.

The Redondo Beach, Calif., native is averaging 10.7 rebounds per game, slotting him 10th in the nation, and has grabbed 17 boards twice this season.

Cincinnati (3-4) also has a stifling defense and won the American Athletic Conference title.

Virginia Tech was the 31st overall seed in the tournament, and Alabama was 36th.


"I can't think of any adjectives for how I feel right now", Hokies senior guard Justin Bibbs said. "The volume wasn't up high enough to hear". Michigan State coach Tom Izzo can't be loving life as a No. 3 seed there, but look out for the Spartans if they get some revenge against Duke in the Sweet 16. The game is scheduled for a 9:10 p.m. tipoff.

When: Tuesday-Friday, March 13-16, 2018.

The Tar Heels, the No. 2 seed in the West, will face No. 15 seed Lipscomb in Charlotte on Thursday despite losing 10 games.

Only 5 percent of brackets have No. 1 seed Xavier reaching the championship game.

Arizona went on to win the Pac-12 regular season and conference tournament title, and early title odds have them among the seven or eight teams most likely to win it all. "It's an honor, we're very, very grateful and excited to play a very talented Texas A&M team". The Friars (23-10) had one of the conference-tournament season's biggest upsets, taking down Xavier in overtime of the Big East semifinals.

The Shockers (25-7) have the type of roster that can make another deep March run, led by guard Landry Shamut and big man Markis McDuffie.

No. 12 New Mexico State (28-5) vs. The game can be watched on TNT and the K-State Sports Network. (Good luck with that.) A university investigation quickly cleared Miles Bridges, who was named in the Yahoo report, but Izzo has been dogged by questions about mishandling cases involving players accused of sexual assault and violence against women after an in-depth ESPN Outside the Lines report.
