Selection Sunday: The UCLA basketball team is going dancing!

Selection Sunday: The UCLA basketball team is going dancing!

Kentucky and Arizona are both in the top half of the Cavaliers' draw.

Virginia doesn't have a great deal of insight into the Retrievers (24-10), but Bennett does have some knowledge of Lyles, who hit "the shot heard 'round the nation", as described on UMBC's athletic website.

"I'm excited for these guys for the opportunity".

"I know when I came here, one of the things that Jay Jacobs and I talked about, David Benedict and I talked about, they were exhausted of Auburn basketball being a ball and chain around the league. You just see the teams in your bracket and there's some really quality teams".

Hours after winning its 31st Southeastern Conference Tournament title, the University of Kentucky men's basketball extended its national record for most NCAA Tournament appearances to 57 on Sunday, as the team was selected as the No. 5 seed in the South Region. He has averaged 19.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game and scored efficiently from all over the floor. The fact remains that the Longhorns have taken care of ranked teams on several occasions this year though, so they deserve their spot.

The Wildcats (22-11) finished fourth in the Big 12 this season. That's it. Now, about 40 percent of No. 1 seeds do reach the Final Four, so you shouldn't discount them altogether. Other short odds to win are Duke (6/1), Virginia (6/1) and Michigan State (15/2). Oh, and it has Oklahoma freshman Trae Young, who has the potential to go on a Steph Curry-like NCAA run. But a loss to the Jayhawks on Thursday in the Big 12 tournament might have kept the Cowboys out of the NCAA Tournament, given that a victory would've strongly boosted their resume. "We just played the No. 1 team in the country and we had them but didn't get it done".

Providence is a program with a rich NCAA Tournament history, making Final Four appearances in 1973 and 1987.

In fact, according to the advanced analytics site, Kansas - though seeded first - is the third-best team in its own quadrant.

With a #9 seed, K-State has to head 1,000 miles east to play a team that's only about three hours away from Manhattan. Davidson is coming off a 58-57 upset of top-seeded Rhode Island in the finals of the A-10 Tournament on Sunday.

The Florida Gators are dancing in the NCAA Tournament for the second straight year.

Unlike a year ago, the team chose to watch the selection show privately.

St. Bonaventure is 0-2 all-time against UCLA, last facing the Bruins during UCLA's run to a 10th national championship in 1975.

Villanova opens against the LIU Brooklyn-Radford victor on Thursday in Pittsburgh.

Defense wins championships, but does Virginia have enough offense to get the job done?

New Mexico State is the best double-digit seed in this year's tournament and it's not even close. The worst odds: Nine teams at 1,000-1, including Montana, Belmont and Savannah State.
