  • NCAA executive hints at doom for ACC bubble teams

I just wonder if Arizona State's two best wins, over projected top seeds Xavier and Kansas, will hold up, as their struggles in in a below-average Pac-12 indicated serious inconsistency, not the excellence those victories displayed.

Nebraska won 22 games and went 13-5 in Big Ten, but was 1-6 against quadrant-1 teams. The Cowboys also lost an assistant coach in the Federal Bureau of Investigation scandal.

USC was seeded second in the Pac-12 Tournament and lost the conference final.

"I know some of the teams on the bubble probably aren't that happy with us right now, but we're playing for something", said A-10 rookie of the year Grady, who led Davidson with 17 points. This will be Lipscomb's first ever tournament appearance.

CBS and Turner Sports executives say the 68 teams selected will be announced in the first 10 minutes of the show, and the entire bracket will be revealed in 45 minutes. The Fighting Irish were the first team OUT of the 68-team field.

Andre Berry scored 18 points and Fatts Russell added 14, including three 3-pointers in a crucial late-game stretch, as No. 25 Rhode Island came from 11 points down in the second half to beat St. Joseph's 90-87 on Saturday afternoon in an Atlantic 10 Conference tournament semifinal at the Capital One Arena in Washington. With AP Photos.Selection Sunday for the NCAA Tournament is here and teams sweating out the wait until the brackets are revealed got bad news from the Atlantic 10 Conference.

Curry won't be the only Davidson product to celebrate this huge win for the program.

Cincinnati earned the AAC's automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament with its first conference tournament championship since it won the Conference USA crown in 2004.

According to Lunardi's projection, Florida State, Notre Dame, Louisville and Syracuse are all among a group of 16 teams contending for the last eight at-large bids available in 2018.
