NCAA Tournament Games in Milwaukee Announced

NCAA Tournament Games in Milwaukee Announced

"I told the kids three weeks ago when we were just hoping to survive and get in the tournament that even if you just get in that First Four, if you can get by that first game it can give you an advantage", Weber said.

But that didn't happen. If they beat Michigan State, that would set up a game against #1 seed Kansas (no #1 seed has ever lost an opening NCAA game so yes, I'm putting them into the 2nd round). Jacksonville State is the No. 15 seed. Though KU has been vulnerable at nearby sites - including Kansas City, where they've lost four of the last six years in the Big 12 Tournament - their minimal travel is the biggest non-matchup storyline in the Midwest.

After a scary incident where the Wolverines' plane slipped off the runway - fortunately there were no injuries - they arrived galvanized for the Big Ten's conference tournament and then won it. MI plays five starters who can all make three-pointers and the team ranks among the top 25 in three-pointers made per game.

No. 9 Michigan State vs.

And how enticing would it be if the Big 12 champion Jayhawks met fifth-seeded Iowa State, the Big 12 tournament champions with whom they split two meetings in the regular season, in the Sweet 16? UofL earned a #2 seed and will play #15 seed Jacksonville State in the NCAA 1st Round in Indianapolis.

The other No. 1 seeds project to be familiar faces, too: ACC champ Notre Dame, SEC champ SC and Baylor, which won the Big 12 regular-season title but then ran into the aforementioned Morgantown Express in the league final. I had Notre Dame a 4 and Purdue a 5. So do not pick Louisville blindly. "They're just going to have to realize", Izzo said. This is not one of Izzo's better teams: too young, too small, too injured. The Gophers are the No. 5 seed in the South. I like the fact that we are only a one time zone difference instead of going somewhere where we are two or three. Iona coach Tim Cluess gave him a second chance and he has taken full advantage of it. Washington plays with a lot of emotion and it can get the better of him, but he is the ideal forward for Iona's high-scoring offense with the ability to score inside and also run the floor.


According to ESPN on Sunday morning, MSU ranks 10th in strength of schedule and 49th in RPI. Drumwright was named tournament MVP, while Tucker also made the all-tournament team.

Louisville is where the MI story comes to an end. The guy sitting next to me, Kamari Murphy, is as good a defensive player as I've ever coached. Its only significant win away from home came against Wichita State (No. 29, RPI) in the Battle 4 Atlantis on November 24, although the Shockers were outside the Top-50 at the time.

All time, Miami has posted an 8-8 mark in tournament play and a 4-2 record under Larrañaga.

The Jayhawks are the top seed in the Midwest Regional and will play their first-round game Friday in Tulsa against No. 16 seed North Carolina Central or UC Davis. They were blown out by Nova in the Big East final. No. 11 Rhode Island was a consensus top-25 team in preseason before struggling through most of the regular season due to injuries, but it got whole again in time to roll through the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament. Jawun Evans, the best scoring point guard in country, leads the nation's eighth highest-scoring offense (85.5 points per game). Tucker (11.3 ppg), Durham (11.1 ppg) and Norbertas Giga (10.4 ppg) also score in double figures.

The Jaguars are shooting 45.7 percent overall and 37.2 from 3-point range.
