Kansas coach on Penn: 'They can beat us.'

Kansas coach on Penn: 'They can beat us.'

Deandre Ayton #13 of the Arizona Wildcats reacts after dunking against the USC Trojans during the championship game of the Pac-12 basketball tournament at T-Mobile Arena on March 10, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Michigan State will go into Friday's game against Bucknell not having played a game in two weeks because of the Big Ten's early conference tournament.

The Final Four is set for March 31 and April 2 in San Antonio. The Cardinals were national championship runners-up in 2009 and 2013.

Defending national champion SC and A'ja Wilson await as a possible Elite Eight matchup for UConn in the Albany Regional. And in 2007, KU went 3-1 and lost to UCLA in the Elite Eight.

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Duke is the slight favorite to win this region, as the Blue Devils have odds of +205 to prevail. I know, I know - those games don't feel like they really matter. Notre Dame has been a top seed the last seven years. They've made a living out of outscoring teams, and they've done that successfully all year. "We do want to reward teams that schedule up". I always respect people who have a physical copy of their bracket on them to review at a moment's notice.

The Irish are in the Spokane Regional and open up against Cal State Northridge on Friday. The winning Wildcats in that game face a potential second-round matchup against the Arizona Wildcats, the No. 4 seed that plays Buffalo in another first-round game in Boise. "We just haven't had that many in".

"I think we'll do much better if we are enjoying playing rather than thinking we have to do something". "That's awesome", McGraw said. Kevin Knox can score from anywhere on the court and Shai Gilgeous Alexander has become a huge bright spot for Coach Cal. Kentucky seems to find themselves peaking at the right time, coming off of an SEC Championship, and will look to continue their hot streak.

BetFirm.com's analytics state that a No. 3 seed has an 11.4 percent chance of making it to the Final Four.

The SEC has the second most NCAA Tournament bids this year behind the Atlantic Coast Conference's nine. They could meet Creighton in the second round who has one of the elite backcourts in the nation, then they would play an extremely risky Arizona team with three electric scorers or a Kentucky team comprised of 5-star freshmen. We need to make sure everybody is ready to play and not come out flat.

"As we got to league play teams saw they can't let our guards get in the paint", Arizona State coach Bobby Hurley said on Tuesday. Look, he's got three kids. they can see their grandparents.

When fans think of the NCAA tournament, it's hard to beat the excitement of the first weekend, when upsets, buzzer beaters and spectacular performances can be common. Mississippi State was a two past year and they played for the national championship.

Stanford potentially is headed to Lexington for the third straight year if it can advance. So we've got a big challenge in terms of attacking it and proving that we're capable of executing and playing great offense against a team that plays the zone. The Bulldogs won their first 32 games this season before losing to SC in the SEC title game. The Crimson Tide had a 3-on-5 matchup - that's players, not NCAA seeding - for the final 10 minutes in a November loss to Minnesota.

As for Mack, he has plenty left to achieve professionally at Xavier, beginning with the NCAA tournament, in which the Musketeers have never made it past a region final. Buffalo, Creighton, Minnesota and Oklahoma got in.

An NCAA commission led by former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice is expected to deliver recommendations shortly after the Final Four about what reforms are needed to save college basketball.

"We spent nearly seven hours on that decision of who those last four teams in and first four out were", NCAA women's basketball committee chair Rhonda Bennett said.
