Oklahoma State 'egregious' omission from NCAA Tournament — CBS Sports

Rhode Island vs. Oklahoma - 3/15/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

If Syracuse (22-8) wins, it will likely meet No. 1 seed Missisippi State - the defending national runner-up that ended Connecticut's record-setting win streak in last year's Final Four - in the second round. The teams also met in the first round of the 2014 NCAA Tournament.

The Friars are 1-4 in NCAA Tournament games in the Ed Cooley era.

Oklahoma owns an 18-13 record behind the fifth-highest-scoring offense in the country, averaging 85.2 points per game. But their best wins were Middle Tennessee State and New Mexico State on a neutral court while they had that very bad home loss to Princeton, albeit without a couple of role players. "Now it is up to us to play that way".

Lubos Michiel ( PAOK sports director) told the referee Giorgos Kominis, "you are finished", according to Agence-France Presse. The match was officially abandoned two hours later and it was reported the referee had reversed his decision .

Eventually, Syracuse was sitting at 5-6 in the ACC with five games to go when head coach Quentin Hillsman said the Orange would need to win five-straight to feel comfortable about NCAA Tournament at-large hopes. "The opportunity to continue our season and play really quality teams is a great one". In this space, we'll explore a few teams that had legitimate arguments (at least to some degree) to be a part of the biggest spectacle in college basketball. The Wildcats ranked tops among power conference schools and fourth nationally in 3-pointers made per game (11.4). "But I think that just makes it more special".

Oklahoma is back on the road this weekend at the Easton Tournament, where it will play six games in four days in Fullerton, California.

In the last reveal on February 19, UConn, Mississippi State, Louisville and Notre Dame were projected as No. 1 seeds. The Big 12 is one of the strongest conferences in the country this season. Purdue made the cut at 16-12 in 2005.

In June 2014 riots between Buddhists, led by radical monks, and Muslims left four dead. Violent attacks against Muslims swept the central district of Kandy over the last week.

But the Sooners hovered just above or below.500 much of the year. Lundin Bennett specifically mentioned those wins - both teams are in the NCAA field - when asked what stood out about the games OU won.

The Rams downed VCU, 70-63, in last year's A-10 championship game, clinching an automatic berth to their first March Madness appearance since 1999.

The Sooners take on Rhode Island on Thursday at 11:15 a.m.

10 empowering feminist movies to watch on International Women's Day
For some local women at the state's only women's college, it was time to consider what gender equality really would mean. Last year, Facebook hosted a 24-hour livestream with female entrepreneurs, policy makers, and leaders .

But the keepers of college basketball will be more than happy to have folks investigating the logic of tournament snubs rather than discussing the FBI investigation that has besmirched the sport.
