Conspiracy theory about the biggest NCAA Tournament snubs

6 North Carolina teams headed to the NCAA Tournament

Creighton athletic director Bruce Rasmussen, the chair of the Division I men's basketball committee, said on the TBS studio show announcing the NCAA Tournament brackets that the Fighting Irish were the last team left out of the field. Maybe the biggest shock was Florida State garnering a No. 9 seed, when they'd been squarely on the bubble since losing in the ACC Tournament on Wednesday. But before jumping too far ahead, the Wildcats will wait to see who comes out of the play-in game between LIU Brooklyn and Radford as the victor.

Commenator Charles Barkley made a statement that the Sooners finished 2-of-8, and that with a No. 10 seed, the committee must have initially placed them as a No. 1 seed if they were included comfortably.

N.C. State is the eighth seed in the Midwest and will take on ninth-seeded Seton Hall on Thursday in Wichita, Kan.

The victor of the Michigan-Montana game will face either No. 6 seed Houston (26-7) or No. 11 seed San Diego State on Saturday for a right to go to the Sweet 16. Fans will be notified by 5 p.m. if their order will be fulfilled. The Wolverines looked like one of the hottest teams in the country when they last played but will they have any rust when they face No. 14 seed Montana?

The Grizzlies are making their 11th NCAA Tournament appearance. The 11 victories in conference play proved to be the most in Clemson history - tying the all-time record for wins in any conference. The Tigers earned a No. 4 seed after playing all season without top post players Danjel Purifoy and Austin Wiley. Marcquise Reed was named to the All-ACC second-team, Gabe DeVoe earned All-ACC honorable mention, while Elijah Thomas was named to the All-ACC Defensive team. Michael Oguine, a 6-2 junior guard, is averaging 15.7 ppg. Teams will need to win first- and second-round games to advance to Omaha. One potential Sweet 16 matchup is with Arizona, the Pac-12 champion and the No. 4 seed in the region.

With 20 wins overall and 11 in the Big 12, OSU would be a lock to get in most years.
