Not every team can make the 68-team field for the NCAA Tournament, so here's a rundown of the biggest snubs from the 2018 NCAA Tournament. "It basically discredited our entire league schedule, and no matter what we or some of the other teams in our league did during the Pac-12 or the conference tournament did not obviously matter". Matt Farrell is next averaging 16.8 points and over five assists per game.
Notre Dame played the majority of its ACC season without pre-season All American Bonzie Colson who had surgery on his foot in January and missed 15 games before returning for the final two games of the regular season and the ACC Tournament. The Irish and Pirates will be meeting for the first time in men's basketball on Tuesday night (Notre Dame is 5-0 all-time against teams from the MEAC). The Irish's last NIT appearance came in 2009, when they reached the semifinals. Led by junior guard Asia Durr and senior forward Myisha Hines-Allen, they've outscored opponents by an average of 19.7 points this season with four players putting up more than 8 points per game.
Aston Villa 4 Wolves 1: Tim Spiers and Nathan Judah analysis
With one win from their past five matches and 10 games to play, the worry for Wolves is whether the wheels come off altogether. The Second City club now occupy third in the Championship, just four points behind the automatic promotion spots.
But for right now, while we can split hairs about it, the decision to leave Notre Dame out of the tournament painfully makes sense. "We were very realistic about how this could go given where we were today with our resume and the whole bit".
At the same time, what's more exciting: watching Trae Young possibly making incredible memories in the tournament or Notre Dame scrapping just to stay alive? It tops the field with 26 victories in the tournament.
US Defence Secretary Mattis arrives in Kabul on unannounced visit
Mattis said he had seen some positive indications from Islamabad, noting some Pakistani military operations along the border. Approximately 14,000 American forces are now in Afghanistan, up from a low of about 8,500 when Obama left office.
Of that group, Alabama, Texas, Syracuse and UCLA made the field of 68 - with the latter two programs, Saint Bonaventure and Arizona State composing the tournament's "Last Four In". Baylor will take on Wagner, USC gets UNC Asheville and Saint Mary's will face Southeastern Louisiana.
Other notable matchups include Marquette taking on Harvard on Wednesday night, and Louisville hosting Northern Kentucky on Tuesday night. Golden Eagles coach Steve Wojciechowski and Crimson coach Tommy Amaker each played for Mike Krzyzewski at Duke. "I'm heartbroken, but it wasn't unexpected once I saw Davidson win today", Brey said Sunday. "He's done a fantastic job at Harvard and we know that they're really good, and so it's going to be a very hard game".
