"I think it's been different each year", Wright said.

Do you know where Lipscomb is? You can also see all 68 teams in the tournament here.

The Big East Tournament champion Wildcats (30-4) earned yet another top seed in the NCAA Tournament and will open the East Region on Thursday in Pittsburgh against the victor of the LIU Brooklyn-Radford game. The fact remains that the Longhorns have taken care of ranked teams on several occasions this year though, so they deserve their spot.

The victor of No. 7 Texas A&M (20-12) and No. 10 Providence (21-13) awaits in a potential second-round matchup for UNC, which was sent to Charlotte instead of Duke. Despite finishing ahead of Texas in the Big 12, the Bears were not an at large selection, finishing the season 18-14.

Cincinnati (3-4) also has a stifling defense and won the American Athletic Conference title.

Villanova, Kansas and Xavier are the other No. 1 seeds in the bracket.

UVa is the top seed in the South Region. Oh, and it has Oklahoma freshman Trae Young, who has the potential to go on a Steph Curry-like NCAA run.

Virginia, coming off the 71-63 victory over UNC on Saturday night in the ACC championship game in Brooklyn, New York, was one of nine ACC teams that received NCAA Tournament bids. The Tigers will be making their 12th tournament appearance overall.

TL;DR: Karachi to host Windies for T20I series
Chairman Najam Sethi on Sunday announced that the upcoming West Indies tour will be held at National Stadium Karachi next month. This is part of our agreement with the West Indies board. "This will be a one-off series.it will be a loss-making enterprise".

Missouri F Barnett arrested for DUI
Instead, the Tigers will return to Nashville, where they just played two weeks ago, an eight-point victory over Vanderbilt. With back-to-back tournament appearances, the 'Noles have now made the "Big Dance" in six of the last 10 seasons.

Michy Batshuayi: 'Borussia Dortmund boss right to drop me'
The draw extends Leipzig's winless run to four league games, and leaves them four points behind the Champions League spots. Borussia Dortmund's Michy Batshuayi celebrates scoring their third goal with Andre Schurrle.

The Big Ten got just four teams in the field: Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue and Ohio State. It's the first time since 2013 Baylor will not play in the NCAA Tournament. They have a 6-0 mark in Charlotte with first- and second-round wins there in 2005 and '11 and two regional wins there '08.

The Shockers (25-7) have the type of roster that can make another deep March run, led by guard Landry Shamut and big man Markis McDuffie.

Marshall won't be able to match Marshall's Shockers in terms of talent, but plays a freewheelng style under coach Dan D'Antoni that's hard to prepare for on short notice.

With a #9 seed, K-State has to head 1,000 miles east to play a team that's only about three hours away from Manhattan. The Cavaliers have a program-record win total and are a unanimous No. 1 in the AP Top 25; before this year, the last time they were No. 1 was December 1982 (the poll had just 20 teams then) during Ralph Sampson's senior season. A tantalising Elite Eight match-up with TCU is a real possibility, and if it pans out, an Aussie will play in the Final Four this year.

The victor of the Jays-Wildcats matchup would likely face No. 1 overall seed Virginia in the second round.

Arizona repeated as Pac-12 champions with Keanu Pinder playing 9 minutes off the bench, continuing his substitute role for the Wildcats as he looks to end his college career on a high. The Wildcats won their fourth-straight SEC Tournament title this weekend.

For the third consecutive year, the NCAA revealed its top 16 seeds over the course of the season.
