  • Izzo Defends MSU Against Critics: “It's Really Funny”

The NCAA Tournament selection committee didn't seem to do Bucknell any favors Sunday night when the bracket was announced.

MI now is tied for No. 10 in the PairWise rankings, which is what the NCAA selection committee uses to choose and place teams.

But the show must go on, if only so office poolsters have a valid excuse for the decline in their production at work.

A No. 2 or No. 3 seed is possible, but a No. 3 seed looks more likely after losing to the Buckeyes. It's looking more and more like a season in which a program will get its first national title and/or a team seeded below #4 and above #8 might win it all. Major upsets are fun to pick but extremely hard to predict. Throughout the year, they've had trouble dealing with quick guards and teams that play tight defense.

Jay Bilas just said he would have MSU as a 1 seed. From 2012 to 2014, the No. 12s were 8-4 in their openers. The Bison beat Arkansas as a 9-seed the next year for their only other NCAA victory.

They need Cassius Winston, who got bottled up by MI in the Big Ten semifinals at Madison Square Garden, to do damage from long range. No. 11 Arizona State/Syracuse play-in game.

No. 3 seed Michigan State will face No. 14 seed Bucknell on Friday at Little Caesars Arena. Two No. 7s knocked off No. 2s in the second round previous year, SC over Duke and MI over Louisville.

MI won both its Wichita games in 1994.

"In order for you to have success you can not leave it in somebody else's hands and hope that success will come", UB coach Felisha Legette-Jack said.

MI was awarded a three seed and they will play their first round game in the West Region in Wichita, Kansas. "I see no logic", Dick Vitale said Sunday evening on ESPN.

Keep scrolling down and you come to the Big Ten, which has a final four of Michigan State, Purdue, Michigan and Ohio State. Xavier, the one seed in the bracket is ranked below MI in the Kenpom rankings. And if Villanova can't make it through the weak East, it will have only itself to blame.

The two teams had two common opponents this season. Based on sheer numbers, the best bets this year are the ACC and - this is not a joke - the SEC. She has lifted an Iowa team wracked with injuries to an almost-certain berth in the Women's NCAA tournament.

Like the Huskies, the Irish are a No. 1 seed again. Prior to the Spartans' opening game in the conference tournament against the Badgers, Winston shot 67 percent or better from the three in four consecutive games. It's happening more often, though. The Chippewas (28-4) won the MAC Tournament's automatic bid and secured an 11-seed in the Spokane Regional.

A Big Ten team hasn't won it all since 2000.

Defending national champion SC and A'ja Wilson await as a possible Elite Eight matchup for UConn in the Albany Regional. "If you came to a workout over the summer you just knew that once we got on the court, magical things are going to happen". That's not good news for Villanova, Xavier, Cincinnati, Gonzaga, Wichita State and Houston. Indeed, of the last 16 champions, only one - CT in 2014 - came from outside the top 10 and only three came from outside the top three.

Houston and San Diego State, the potential third-round matchup (round of 32) are also both top-50 teams. In the semifinals, it will be Virginia over Gonzaga and Michigan State over Villanova, followed two nights later by Michigan State over Virginia.
