Manning, who led KU to the 1988 NCAA championship, is 81-80 in his third season at Wake, taking the Demon Deacons to the tournament for the first time.

After anxiously waiting for days, the Syracuse players and coaches found themselves left out of the NCAA Tournament when the 68-team field was announced on Sunday.

While it's not really fair the Zags are held to a Final Four or bust standard these days (a standard just about any team in the country would kill for), that is the program's burden. The Wildcats will begin defense of their title in Buffalo against the victor of the play-in game between Mount St. Mary's and New Orleans on Thursday night.

The complaints should be fewer than usual this year, however, after the selection committee chose Kansas State, Wake Forest, Providence and USC as the last four at-large teams to make this year's NCAA tournament field.

Where is your favorite team in the tournament ranked? The Rams were given a No. 11 seed in the Midwest region and will open against Creighton in Sacramento on Friday.

The 'Dores finished the year 19-15 with a 10-8 record in conference play. Their nonconference schedule was weak but they own two wins over Baylor, one over West Virginia and Oklahoma State and had two losses to Kansas by a total of five points.

March Madness is here!

The Wildcats will take on North Dakota in the first round of the tournament on Thursday in Salt Lake City.

Rounds three and four, including Sweet 16 action will take place from Kansas City, San Jose, Memphis and NY. From 1984-1992, Northwestern went 2-16 in Big Ten play every year but one.
