NCAA Tournament 2018 Preview: Virginia faces tough road in the South

Brownell outlined his vision for leading Clemson to the Big Dance for the first time since 2011.

No. 4 Auburn vs.

"Certainly excited about what's next. Whether we have him for Thursday - 48 hours can make a big difference - but we're hopeful he can play Thursday, and if we are fortunate enough to advance, we're even more optimistic he can play Saturday".

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

It's a strong showing for the super-powers in college basketball, of which A&M is a member in the SEC. So we'll have a challenge.

Looking forward to the committee's explanation on these calls.

Also keep an eye on No. 6 Houston and No. 11 San Diego State in Wichita, Kansas.

For the overall No. 1 seed, Virginia did not get a easy road, but the lower half isn't super strong.

The Midwest's No. 16 seed is Penn (24-8), which won the Ivy League by defeating Harvard, 68-65, on Sunday. Additionally, Northeast Conference victor LIU-Brooklyn will play Radford in a First Four game in Dayton, and MAAC champ Iona earns a date with Duke.

Wilson was part of a team that finished dead last in the ACC under head coach James Johnson, and he also finished dead last again in the first year of the tenure of Buzz Williams. "That's why we play the games". We're hard to beat. (Good luck with that.) A university investigation quickly cleared Miles Bridges, who was named in the Yahoo report, but Izzo has been dogged by questions about mishandling cases involving players accused of sexual assault and violence against women after an in-depth ESPN Outside the Lines report. These guys are special. "But I for sure never got into the business just to win games", Williams said.

Along with the players killed in the worst disaster in USA sports history, there were 39 coaches, administrators, community leaders, fans and crew who died when the team's chartered jet crashed on November 14, 1970, when returning from a game.

The Jayhawks last year beat Michigan State in the second round of the Midwest Regional, but the only way to meet this year would be if both make it to the regional final in Omaha, Nebraska.

The Tigers lost one of their top players, Donte Grantham, to a ACL injury in January.

With Grantham out, Marcquise Reed and Gabe DeVoe stepped up. He shot 19 points and had three assists and five rebounds during the game. Four Bruins average in double digits: Holiday (20.3), Kris Wilkes (13.8), Thomas Welsh (13) and Jaylen Hands (10.1). Reed has posted 11 20-point games this season, including a career-best 28 points in a loss at Virginia Tech (Feb. 21).

"I honestly wanted to go there over Boise, so I'm much more happy about this place", DeVoe said.

An NCAA commission led by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is expected to deliver recommendations shortly after the Final Four about what reforms are needed to save college basketball. "We're really ready. We're going to be prepared and Coach Jans is going to have us prepared".
