NCAA Tournament dishes Virginia a tough road as top team

Alabama gets a No. 9 seed, will face Virginia Tech

By early evening, there will be a 68-team bracket.

According to Kenpom.com, the Bruins are the 5th tallest team in the NCAA.

Cincinnati, another 2-seed, was 30-4 in the regular season and the Bearcats' best non-conference wins were Mississippi State and UCLA. All votes are done by secret ballot.

So it will be an anxious Sunday in Louisville, where the Cardinals are 48 hours removed from a 17-point loss to expected No. 1 overall seed Virginia in the ACC Tournament.

Those seeds aren't locked in and can be moved by a majority vote.

"Our season's not over", McDevitt said, "but that's hard. when you had other goals". Here is all the info you need to know to watch FSU basketball and the latest projections heading into Sunday. We have been all year long the best conference in the country. But the corruption angle is one on which he could come out at full speed if he and his colleagues opt to give it more than lip service. Nine of the league's 10 teams are up for consideration. Sunday could topple that mark, with Arizona State, Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Notre Dame and Syracuse on the proverbial bubble.

-The region to watch is the Midwest, which is top heavy with Kansas, Duke and Michigan State, who were ranked in the top 4 in the AP preseason poll.

Traditionally, teams with RPIs above 70 don't make the field. Oklahoma and Arizona State started so well, but finished so poorly, limping to the finish.

"The first "conversation" with the attacker came after Senator Paul's ribs were broken". He said this was a dispute between longtime neighbors and not politically motivated.

"We have had a really good year, a ton of ups and downs in terms of adversity we've been hit with, and I think our guys have responded with great resolve, great togetherness, great fight", said Texas coach Shaka Smart.

Michigan State may not be a top seed in the NCAA tournament, but the Spartans are among the most talented teams in the nation. Miami, Duke, and Virginia were able to take advantage of that over the last two weeks and teams will be able to do the same later in the tournament. "You just see the teams in your bracket and there are some real quality teams". Rinse and repeat until all 68 teams are seeded. The money passed around between agents, shoe company executives and coaches trying to get their hands on top recruits might be different if high school players could go directly to the National Basketball Association. There are, however, several geographical exceptions.

Teams from the same conference can't meet prior to the regional semifinals if they played each other twice during the season. Thanks to TBS changing up the way they announced who is in and who is out, we should know quicker than usual whether Miles' gang made the dance. With the show moving off network television for the first time in over three decades, executives can expect more of the same this year.

To finish the bracket, the NCAA uses an application program to place teams in the proper regions based on mileage from campus, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.

The NCAA Selection Show will air from 6 p.m.to 8 p.m. ET (3 p.m.to 5 p.m. PT) but will not be shown at its usual spot on CBS.

Naturally, bubble teams and their fan bases left on the outside looking in will complain and point to a flawed process.

But for one reason or another, things eventually turned sour.

"I don't think it's just going to be a little blip on the radar", said John Tauer, the championship-winning coach at Division III St. Thomas in Minnesota, who doubles as a social psychology professor.
