Rhode Island vs. Oklahoma - 3/15/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Arizona State was just as bad, losing five of its last six games. If the Cowboys had Trae Young, who led Division 1 college basketball in both points per game (27.4) and assists per game (8.8), and Oklahoma did not, they would be in the tournament instead of Oklahoma.

ASU lost three key seniors off last season's team - Kelsey Moos, Sophie Brunner and Quinn Dornstauder - leading Turner Thorne to call this a transition season, but the Sun Devils earned a higher seed than last season and won one more game. Auburn and Miami made it as at-large teams. And the computers show their non-conference strength of schedule to be one of the worst in the country.

"When we got on the plane to come to St. Louis, there are a lot of unknowns about kind of our future, especially in the NCAA Tournament", Crimson Tide coach Avery Johnson said. Arizona State led the Pac-12 with an 83.5 scoring average and a plus-four turnover margin.

"But that wasn't the only factor going against the Gaels - Saint Mary's was also done in by the NCAA's desire to get big names into their big-money tournament".

As the 5-seed in the Big East Tournament, the Friars knocked off Creighton in the first round to advance to the semifinals. Villanova beat Providence to win the conference tourney on Saturday. The NCAA Tournament is the crown jewel of the NCAA, which topped $1 billion in revenue for the first time a year ago. URI fell short against Davidson, 58-57, while attempting to repeat in Sunday's title game here at Capital One Arena, but the Rams were comfortably included in the field of 68 as an at-large selection.


"We understand that there probably were some things that we could have controlled better over the course of the season", Boynton said. What are we supposed to think of this?

After winning the Conference USA tournament in 2016 and 2017, Middle Tennessee lost in an upset to Southern Mississippi in the quarter finals.

He tweeted: "NCAA selection committee chairman Bruce Rasmussen told ESPN that the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe had nothing to do with USC, Oklahoma State or Louisville being omitted". Notre Dame got no love either for its deep run into the ACC tournament or the return of its best player, Bonzie Colson.

Arguing the case for a team such as Oklahoma or Syracuse being in the tournament is preferable to arguing about the credibility and legitimacy of major college basketball. They're probably NIT-bound.
