This is the fifth straight year Bennett, the USBWA's national coach of the year, has guided Virginia to the NCAA tournament.

The March Madness field was announced on Selection Sunday for the 2018 NCAA basketball tournament.

Four Cavaliers teams have now won 30 games - three under coach Tony Bennett, including his other ACC title team in 2013-14. Virginia has been one of college basketball's best teams this season, and this win nearly surely cements their spot as a 1-seed in the tournament. And on the court, Arizona went from No. 2 in the AP Top 25 to unranked in November after an ugly 0-3 showing in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament in the Bahamas. Kentucky and Arizona are both in the top half of the Cavaliers' draw. More than that, the squad is a symbolic standard-bearer for a sport that is marked by parity and a tournament that figures to be wide open. It also features arguably the nation's most electric player in Trae Young, who led Oklahoma in as a No. 10 seed despite the Sooners going 2-8 down the stretch.

Virginia Tech is headed to its second straight NCAA Tournament as an 8-seed, and will face the 9-seed Alabama in Pittsburgh on Thursday night at 9:20 pm.

The Aztecs, who haven't won a tournament championship since 2011, will play in the title game for the fourth time in five years, and eighth time in 10 seasons.

The ACC Tournament heads back to North Carolina after a two-year stint in New York City, but expect it to be back sooner rather than later.

UNC will be going for its 19th all-time conference title.

" The region to watch is the Midwest, which is top-heavy with Kansas, Duke and Michigan State, which were ranked in the top four in the preseason". The top seeds in the West Regional include No. 1 seed Xavier, No. 3 seed MI and No. 4 seed Gonzaga.

Twitter suspends accounts for 'tweetdecking'
Which exposed almost 700,000 people to propaganda in January over the course of the 2016 US Presidential Election. However, Twitters recent move is big considering the number of accounts that have been suspended.

If Duke wins, it could face Oklahoma and star guard Trae Young on Saturday. The Cavaliers became the first school to win 20 ACC games (regular season or tournament) in single-season conference history. "I think that's something that we have to do, so we don't have a really big margin for error. Winning the regular season and then this means a lot". The 6-3 shooting guard is known as a lock-down shooter, but he has a well-rounded game.

Whichever teams makes it through Omaha to the Final Four in San Antonio will have earned it. "They just have a little more to their game, a little bit more shiftiness to their game".

Marshall won't be able to match Marshall's Shockers in terms of talent, but plays a freewheelng style under coach Dan D'Antoni that's hard to prepare for on short notice.

"You look at their scoring all year long, 76 percent of their scoring comes from those three guys", Williams said.

She is the county's first-ever victor of the NCHSAA award that is now in its 32nd year. The Southeastern Conference sent eight teams, while the Big 12 sent seven.

That's good news for the first two rounds as they are unbeaten in the Roy Williams-era when they play the first two rounds in the state of North Carolina.

Villanova opens against the LIU Brooklyn-Radford victor on Thursday in Pittsburgh. The Wildcats are 9-2 favorites to win the title, according to, with Duke right behind at 5-1.
