Texas A&M Basketball: Do Aggies have toughest draw of 7-seeds?

March 12 05:31 2018

The Musketeers could be poised to break through this season. Kyron Cartwright (11.8 points, 5.7 assists) almost led the Friars to Big East tournament championship, having proved themselves with two victories over Xavier and another over Villanova.

The Orange will face Arizona State in a play-in game Wednesday.

Hall of Fame coach Tom Izzo always says he hopes to “win the weekend” in the NCAA Tournament.

Canisius is hosting Jacksonville State at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the College Basketball Invitational (CBI), and Niagara will play at Eastern Michigan in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament (CIT) at the same time. I think our defense grew up the last three weeks of the season.

Regardless of their success, the experience can only be a good thing for the Friars. The Wildcats spent eight weeks at No. 1 in the AP Top 25, have no seniors and National Basketball Association prospects Brunson and Bridges are not expected to return next season, increasing the feeling to make a Final Four run now.

Blueitt’s return was a huge boon to the Musketeers.

He’s an excellent talent and will be a first-round pick but needs more help to beat a veteran team like South Dakota State.

“I’m going with the upset”, Barkley said. “The volume wasn’t up high enough to hear”. The Gamecocks reached the Final Four for the first time in school history a year ago.

For the first time since 2003, Auburn men’s basketball is going dancing.

News 2 will have you covered for everything Tennessee and Lipscomb leading up to and through their opening round games. The 6-foot-9 forward, who joined the team after graduating from high school in December, had 16 points and 10 rebounds against West Virginia in the title game.

The victor of that game will face Florida in Dallas on Thursday. That easily topped the six teams the SEC has put into the tournament nine times, most recently in 2008.

Alabama (19-15) tied for ninth place in the Southeastern Conference with an 8-10 league mark after losing its final five regular-season games. Guard Alpha Diallo averages 13 points and 6.6 boards, while point guard Kyron Cartwright averages 11.8 points and 5.7 assists. Or we might get the Steve Fisher Bowl with a MI matchup against No. 11 seed San Diego State.

1 overall seed in NCAA Tournament; other top seeds are Villanova, Kansas and Xavier.

The Wolverines were in the second to last matchup announced, which left several members of the team sweating as they watched the TV inside the Junge Family Champions Center in Crisler Arena.

The Kentucky Wildcats, winners of the SEC Tournament Championship, will open NCAA Tournament play in Boise, Idaho, Thursday against Davidson in an all-Wildcats affair.

Arizona (27-7) earned the Pac-12’s automatic bid for the NCAA tournament with its conference tournament championship over USC last night.
