Three takeaways from the NCAA Tournament bracket

Associated Press

Tennessee, which split the regular-season title with Auburn, is the SEC's top-seeded team at No. 3 in the South. Kentucky, which beat Tennessee 77-72 on Sunday for the SEC Tournament title, wound up seeded fifth in the same region. Miami went 11-7 in the ACC and was a top-25 team, so they couldn't be left out either.

The pressure will be higher than ever for the Cavaliers (31-2) to do it now.

It should be an eventual show, and that's not just because of the unnecessary changes being made, like announcing the teams before the pairings and extending the show to two hours. "But you know, that's definitely in the back of our minds". "We look at every game as being as important as any of the others".

When looking at the history of No. 1 seeds in the NCAA Tournament, there's a good chance that Villanova will have little trouble winning their first game, no matter who they end up playing in the opening round.

"I told our players that everyone can play if they're in there", Virginia coach Tony Bennett said.

The only other ACC Teams with as many road wins this season are Duke, North Carolina and Virginia.

San Antonio will host the Final Four, with the national championship game at the Alamodome on April 2.

Oklahoma State is another NCAA tournament bubble team that Lunardi had among his "First Four Out", so this win is huge for its resume.

Both the Miami Hurricanes Mens and Womens basketball teams will host watch parties for the NCAA Tournament bracket shows at the Rathskeller on campus. Now, it's time for the Wildcats to continue living up to the hype after earning a No. 1 seed in the East Region with a matchup against the victor of the LIU Brooklyn and Radford game. The SOS was exceptional, finishing as No. 3 out of 351 teams. Wildcats head coach Sean Miller is embroiled in a very weird, potentially disastrous, potentially libelous scandal. The show will be aired on TBS for the first time since CBS and Turner Sports began partnering on NCAA Tournament coverage in 2011.

The Jayhawks (27-7) won a record 14th straight Big 12 regular-season championship and backed that up with the conference tournament title.

Coach John Calipari's latest crop of Kentucky freshmen just needed a little longer to figure things out. One potential Sweet 16 matchup is with Arizona, the Pac-12 champion and the No. 4 seed in the region.
