THEY'RE IN! Arizona State Sun Devils advance to NCAA Tournament

David Wallace-USA TODAY Sports

They're one of the most-talented teams in the country and probably better than where they were seeded. The Univerisity of Rhode Island Rhody Rams team were also victors taking down the VCU Rams to a final score of 76-67 to advance to the Atlantic 10 conference semifinals.

Don't forget before the NCAA Tournament begins, you can also play Bracket Games through CBS Sports by creating a pool with your office, family or friends, or filling out your bracket online.

Saint Mary's and Middle Tennessee were two mid-major schools that arguably should have made the tournament, but weak strength of schedules likely led the selection committee to pass on them. In fact, the Sooners haven't won a road game since December 12th.

The first four games in Dayton, Ohio, will be LIU-Brooklyn against Radford and St. Bonaventure against UCLA on Tuesday night, and North Carolina Central against Texas Southern and Arizona State against Syracuse on Wednesday night.

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.

Oklahoma started 14-2 but lost 11 of its final 15 games, including an opening-round loss in the Big 12 tournament, to finish 18-13, an unusually poor record for an at-large team.

"I think it is a disgrace, I think it is an embarrassment, and it's a humiliation to what this tournament's about".

Once Trae Young was being presented to the nation as college basketball's Steph Curry and Oklahoma's games were being televised nationally as often as Golden State Warriors games you knew how this could play out in March.

The women's NCAA tournament bracket will be unveiled on Monday (ESPN, 7 p.m. ET).

"It was pretty much chalk in the conference tournaments this week as far as non top-five or six league regular season champions", he said. Louisville, with an RPI of 39, became the highest-rated team in that index to miss the tournament, backing the concept that the selection committee would look more heavily at other factors.

The Orange enters this year's tournament at 22-8.

Not having Middle Tennessee in the NCAA Tournament is wrong for a lot of wrongs. "I think this runs deep enough and involves enough people in programs that something's got to change".
