March Madness 2018: Complete NCAA Tournament First Four, first round TV schedule

March Madness 2018: Complete NCAA Tournament First Four, first round TV schedule

So it will be an anxious Sunday in Louisville, where the Cardinals are 48 hours removed from a 17-point loss to expected No. 1 overall seed Virginia in the ACC Tournament.

Future NBA Draft picks: Robert Williams, Texas A&M; Luke Maye, North Carolina; Theo Pinson, North Carolina; Moritz Wagner, Michigan; Michael Porter, Missouri; Keita Bates-Diop, Ohio State; Mike Daum, South Dakota State; Killian Tillie, Gonzaga. Michigan State, the Big Ten regular-season champ, meets Bucknell on Friday in Detroit. A new formula employed this year separates a team's schedule into four quadrants. The Blue Devils have won 12 of 14 matchups against Michigan State, including an 88-81 victory early this season in a meeting of the top two teams in The Associated Press poll.

Thirty-two teams earn entry into the field through automatic bids by winning their conference championship. "I'm not on the committee, but certainly the way that we've played over the last couple of weeks we look like an NCAA tournament team".

After all, there's really nothing more he or his team can do now.

Carolina's fairly recent switch to a small ball lineup (starting Cam Johnson and playing jack-of-all-trades Theo Pinson at the four) made them a potent offensive team and sparked their surge in February.

Regional round games will be hosted in Boston (East), Atlanta (South), Los Angeles (West), and Omaha, Neb., (Midwest). Miles has been campaigning hard ever since the Huskers' season ended in a blowout loss to eventual Big Ten Tournament champion MI.

SEC: Alabama squeaks past Texas A&M
Firmly on the bubble, Alabama will likely need one or two more wins to make it into the field of 68 on Selection Sunday . The Auburn Tigers are shooting 37.1 percent from beyond the arc and 78.9 percent from the free throw line.

Don't be the one who forgets to spring forward Sunday
Ancient agrarian civilizations used a form of daylight saving time , adjusting their timekeeping depending on the sun's activity. State legislators appear ready to abandon standard time during the winter months in favor of year-round daylight saving time .

Allscripts Launches EHR-Integrated Lyft Transportation Service
The platform pushes an SMS alert to passengers about the scheduled ride and the business provider typically covers the cost. The move marks a continuing evolution of a service delivery model Lyft previously piloted with Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Will tournament seeding be as egregious as a year ago?

Auburn (25-7) fell from 8th to 13th in NCAA RPI, making even a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament unlikely now. Villanova has excellent guard play and one of the best coaches in the country in Wright. With a win, it would advance to play whichever team emerges from the 8-9 matchup between Creighton and Kansas State.

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

It continues to be hard for mid-major conferences to place their teams. Rhode Island beat St. Joseph's in the Atlantic 10 Tournament, and Cincinnati beat Memphis in the American Tournament. The Bonnies are an extremely balanced team, with a top 100 offensive (59) and defensive (94) efficiency. CBS's Jerry Palm also has Oklahoma as one of the first four in, but as a No. 11 seed.

The committee chair will get down to the final teams and ask members to rank their top four, much like the ESPN panel did on College GameDay Saturday morning.

Challenged about Oklahoma's seed by TBS's Charles Barkley, Rasmussen said, "The games in November count the same as the games in February". The Cowboys became the first team to sweep both regular season games against Kansas in Jayhawks coach Bill Self's 15 seasons.
