NCAA selection show to start with teams revealed

College basketball is in trouble.

Texas is fighting for its NCAA tournament life and could ill-afford to drop its first Big 12 tournament game to Iowa State.

Best Coach in the Region: John Beilein, Michigan. "What are we doing this for?"

Kyle Guy and Virginia grabbed the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament.

For a lot of reasons, this didn't make sense.

That doesn't make it right. Along with the 32 automatic bids, there are 36 at-large bids to get into the tournament.

As Selection Sunday approaches, there's much curiosity over how the process will play out - for fans, players, and even coaches like TCU's Jamie Dixon - over just exactly how the cards will be shuffled due to a tweak in the system this year. In the BracketMatrix compilation, Louisville was in the field on just 45 of the 104 brackets used.

"We've played a very, very hard schedule, under very hard circumstances this year, and my guys have 120 percent earned an opportunity to have their name called on Sunday", Padgett said Thursday.

At least Middle Tennessee can cling to the hope of sneaking into the NCAA thanks to an impressive RPI.

It's been nearly a week since MI basketball won the Big Ten Championship in the Big Apple. Get ready to agonize over losing a Final Four team early.

All were beaten in their conference tournaments.

Russia's Gazprom says has started ending gas contracts with Ukraine
Naftogaz achieved compensation in the amount of $ 4.63 billion for Gazprom's failure to deliver agreed volumes of gas for transit. This will improve security of supply and give Ukrainians affordable energy", Kobolyev added.

-The ACC led the way with nine teams in the tournament, matching a record the ever-expanding conference set past year.

They range from teams that made it into the tournament off the so-called bubble - Alabama - to one of the best teams in the country.

Now, it's on to the NIT for the Bulldogs.

"Why are there outliers one way or the other?" he said.

But when the smoke cleared, there were no programs, players or coaches banned from the court.

Miles Bridges leads Michigan State with an average of 16.9 points per game, and he gets plenty of support from Nick Ward and Cassius Winston. All of those games will take place in Pittsburgh.

Svi Mykhailiuk also had 16 points for the Jayhawks, who scrapped their way through three games in three days without their 7-foot anchor. The Cyclones enter this year's tournament as the No. 10 seed and will need to prevail again to keep playing next week. "No. 1 Conference RPI", the scrolling words read during the Big 12 Conference tournament.

Recall last weekend. No sooner had Chicago's Loyola Ramblers earned their first tournament berth since 1985 than TV people were speculating as to whether they would be an 11 seed or No. 12 and predicting they would give some opponent trouble. MI beat Purdue for the Big Ten title at Madison Square Garden, where more than 4,000 seats went unsold for the championship game.

Nevada lost in their conference tournament, but will easily still receive an at-large bid.

"As a committee, we haven't done a good enough job with being transparent about the process", he said. "The next one is the real one".
