NCAA Men: The Aussie schedule for March Madness

ANALYSIS Over the last month Theo Pinson has been UNC's best player

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

"I think our guys are excited as well as they should be".

"I know he's a heck of a tennis player,"said UVa coach Tony Bennett, who noted that Ryan Odom was also on a coaching staff at Charlotte that included Orlando Vandross, the director of recruiting and player development on Bennett's UVa staff".

Kansas freshman Silvio De Sousa, who joined the team at midseason, had 16 points on 8-for-8 shooting and 10 rebounds in the Big 12 title game against West Virginia. The team didn't necessarily have a "bad" loss all year, but they finished with 91 as its RPI. Now the Wildcats (24-10) enter with a No. 5 seed after winning seven of eight to claim the SEC Tournament title.

Arizona (27-7) also is peaking at the right time, following a Pac-12 regular-season title with a dominating win over Southern California in the conference tournament.

But now the attention turns to UMBC, which defeated Vermont in the America East final on Saturday. Even though Virginia has been doing this for years, it's still a bit of a weird approach that has not produced a Final Four appearance for the program.

Rovman Powell's century helps West Indies beat Ireland
Netherlands will be heading into the game with some confidence following their 57 run win against Papua New Guinea . The West Indies will face Ireland on Saturday at 2:30 a.m.in their next match in the qualifiers.

UVa is the top seed in the South Region.

FIRST ROUND: Kansas, N.C. State, New Mexico State, Charleston, Syracuse (winning a play-in game first, then topping TCU), Michigan State, Oklahoma, Duke. The Tigers will be making their 12th tournament appearance overall. USC had four Quadrant 1 wins while Arizona State had three and was still able to get in.

If your favorite team didn't make the NCAA Tournament, there's a chance they may have landed in the 2018 National Invitation Tournament. The First Round will get underway on Thursday, March 15.

The Mountain West put two teams in with tournament champ San Diego State and regular-season champ Nevada earning an at-large bid. Yet should they take care of business against Buffalo as one would expect, they will next likely have to take Kentucky, before a potential Elite Eight date with #1 seed Virginia.

By comparison, Wichita State is a four seed in the East Region and had just three Quadrant 1 victories. If the Spartans can get to the regional final, they may face a Kansas team that beat them by 20 points in the second round previous year. But after six trips to the Sweet 16 in the last 10 years, they should finally break through for the first Final Four in program history.

The Longhorns qualified for the NCAA Tournament as the 10-seed in the South Region. The victor of that game will face either fifth-seeded Clemson or 12th-seeded New Mexico State in the second round on Sunday. Here is a look at the odds to win March Madness and this year's championship.

The Shockers didn't miss a beat in their first season in the American Athletic Conference and secured their ninth straight 25-win season.
