Oklahoma makes the NCAA tournament

Oklahoma makes the NCAA tournament

About an hour before the NCAA Tournament Selection Show kicked off, Oklahoma play-by-play announcer Toby Rowland intoned the crowd at Lloyd Noble Center to stay positive.

The Rams - who won their first outright regular-season Atlantic 10 title in program history - are making the 10th NCAA Championship appearance in program history, and the second under head coach Dan Hurley. Both teams sank shots at around 38% with Davidson holding a decisive 14-9 advantage at the stripe.

The Oklahoma Sooners saw their season end in a 71-60 loss to the rival Oklahoma State Sooners where the team never found consistent scoring. We did not see the real Rhode Island in the conference championship game and hopefully that is different here...

The Sooners rose to No. 3 in the nation in mid-January before a swoon left their NCAA Tournament hopes in jeopardy.

Oklahoma, meanwhile, has one of the craziest rollercoaster rides of the season.

In the A-10 Tournament, the Rams got 18 points from sophomore Jeff Dowtin en route to a 76-67 first round win over VCU on Friday afternoon.

OU's early season successes included wins at Wichita State and TCU and neutral-site wins over OR and USC. OU avoided the Tuesday and Wednesday play-in games, earning a No. 10 seed in the Midwest Region.
