March Madness Selection Show info and tournament schedule

Michigan State forward Jaren Jackson Jr. celebrates with guard Matt Mc Quaid in the second half of their Big Ten basketball game against Maryland at the Breslin Center in East Lansing on Thursday

The Aggies (20-12) earned an at-large bid in the West Region and will face No. 10-seed Providence (21-13) on Friday at Spectrum Center in Charlotte.

Rasmussen told CBSSports.com it's critical for the committee to discuss beyond the metrics and look at observations. And you'd also see a lot of Kentucky fans, because they famously travel anywhere to watch their team. Our ratings will be determined by how good the games are and which teams win.

Finish: 9-7 in Big-12, 23-8 overall. "For us to be involved in a five-game losing streak and weather all of that adversity and be where we are right now speaks to the character and the core of our team".

In September, the Justice Department arrested 10 people, including four assistant coaches from Arizona, Southern California, Auburn and Oklahoma State.

ESPN, the exclusive home of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament, will reveal the 64-team bracket during the NCAA Women's Basketball Selection Special presented by Capital One on Monday, March 12, at 7 p.m. ET. The Southeastern Conference, which has made a concerted effort to transfer its success in football to the hardcourt, got 8 of its 14 teams into the field. Oklahoma State could be an true exception and, perhaps, one that removes RPI, a metric that has its fair share of critics, from team sheets in the future. I'm starting to think OSU deserves to be in over the Sooners, but that's not going to happen.

Put another way: less than 5 percent of Big 12 teams in the NCAA Tournament have made the Final Four.

Once the 36 at-large teams are filled, the committee moves on to seeding 1-68.

According to the NCAA website, each member submits a list of the field's best eight teams.

Severed leg used as pillow at hospital
He lost his leg in the accident and was sent to the medical college after preliminary treatment at a local health centre. A departmental proceeding has also been initiated against consultant on-call doctor in the matter.

Virginia, which began the season unranked in The Associated Press poll, might be considered the prohibitive favorite, as much as the notoriously anarchic tournament can be said to have one. We will also look at SC and its quest to repeat, and provide region-by-region breakdowns. Rinse and repeat until all 68 teams are seeded.

Sean Miller has had eight tries, but he has never coached Arizona to the Final Four. There are, however, several geographical exceptions. The Sun Devils beat two possible No. 1 seeds, winning at Kansas - a herculean task for a non-conference opponent - and beat Xavier on a neutral court, and they also topped Kansas State and St. John's, before injuries derailed the Johnnies.

The first and second rounds are scheduled for March 16-19.

The NCAA Tournament bracket was finally revealed Sunday.

Jim Christian wasn't necessarily a hire that "won a press conference" when he was tabbed to succeed Steve Donahue at Boston College, but the move by the Eagles to tab Christian as their head coach is paying major dividends.

A long three days between now and when the brackets come out on Sunday.

And yet, it's hard to imagine there weren't some sighs of relief in the NCAA offices when some bubble teams' names were left out of the field.
