Why? If the Blue Devils win the ACC Tournament, they're assured a 1-seed in the NCAA Men's College Basketball Tournament.

The Friars are among Lunardi's last four byes, but they are in a precarious position as the Big East's No. 5 seed entering the tournament. Auburn is the No. 1 seed after they shared the SEC's regular season crown with Tennessee. Also the hottest team in the league with a four-game winning streak, Tennessee is playing very well on both sides of the ball - particularly on defense.

Who gets selected into the field in the NCAA Tournament?

Baylor is the No. 6 seed in the Big 12 Tournament, and the Bears have struggled down the stretch, losing three of their last four regular-season games. With a loss, I would put Oklahoma in, but I am not sure if the committee would do the same, so it would be a waiting game for the Sooners.

Mark Cuban Investigated for Alleged Sexual Assault in 2011
The Multnomah County District Attorney's ultimately declined to press charges, citing insufficient evidence. While Cuban wasn't implicated, the SI report raised questions about what he knew and when.

After winning the last 14 games of the season, including the WWC Championship, and going 20-1 in its last 21 games, Gonzaga looks like a contender entering the tournament. If Kentucky has multiple weapons rolling then they could easily make a run and win this event. They were the No. 15 seed who made it to the Sweet 16!

That's why the Vols were keeping their eyes focused on bigger prizes even as they celebrated their SEC title. That means their first game is against No. 4 seed Creighton.

Using the same data used by the Selection Committee, Jacobson and Dutta created a step-by-step process, comparing teams in pairs and assessing which teams are most dominant. The Vikings (27-3) are making their first appearance in the NCAA Tournament since the 2012-13 season.

Elsewhere on the bubble, Notre Dame and Syracuse each won on the first day of the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament to keep their hopes alive. Win that game and the Bruins are in easily.

Nagaland CM wins by over 5000 votes
The Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP ) is all set to get the post of deputy chief minister in the newly elected Nagaland government. Needless to say, the BJP would have been a part of the Nagaland government even if the NPF had managed to secure a majority.

"Every year, we think about how we can present the tournament in a new, innovative and creative way", CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus said. That great spot may be ruined by their seed in the Big East Tournament. The Gators can beat anyone on the nights when they get it going from three. Yet they enter Wednesday's second-round game against the Wake Forest-Syracuse victor with 10 Quadrant 1 wins, second only to Kansas (11) — and that could have them in contention for a 2-seed despite their low ACC Tournament seeding.

In all reality, MI can make a pretty good case for being a two seed. Utah will need AT LEAST two wins to be considered on Sunday. Rhode Island will make the NCAA tourney regardless of if it wins the A-10 title, but the Rams want the best seed possible and will play with that goal in mind.

The Jayhawks also lost at home to Texas Tech (23-8) in early January, and had senior guard Keenan Evans not been hobbled by a toe injury, the Red Raiders probably would have ended Kansas' regular-season run.

The follow-up to a give-the-fans-what-they-want show is to demolish it once again by revealing all 68 tournament teams first and then showing the bracket, which will likely come after 60 commercial breaks.
