Dancing Again: FSU tabbed for second straight NCAA tourney

The Bruins had such noteable wins against SEC Tournament victor Kentucky, a regular season win against Pac-12 Champion Arizona in Tucson and swept USC. Arizona State's? The most debated in-or-out teams in all of the brackets. If they can beat Syracuse, they will take on #6 TCU. The Trojans lost to Arizona 75-61 in the Pac-12 conference championship game Saturday in Las Vegas.

Arizona State is ranked 57th by an average of three results-based metrics and 46.3 by an average of three predictive-based metrics.

Virginia, Villanova, Kansas and Xavier earned the No. 1 seeds in the NCAA men's basketball tournament.

The UCLA Bruins got their hands on an at-large bid thanks to a 21-11 overall record this season, including an 11-7 mark in Pac-12 conference play, good for a tie for the #3 seed but losing out on a tiebreaker to Utah.

The NCAA revealed the entire field of 68 teams during TBS' NCAA March Madness Selection Show on Sunday to the delight of head coach Bobby Hurley. "They had enough again on their resume that the committee felt that they needed to be in".

Arizona State will face fellow No. 11 seed Syracuse in a play-in game on Wednesday, March 14 in Dayton, Ohio, with the victor advancing to face TCU in the round of 64.

With back-to-back tournament appearances, the 'Noles have now made the "Big Dance" in six of the last 10 seasons. The Wildcats play #13 Buffalo in Boise, ID on Thursday.
