Men's Basketball: Northwestern receives first-ever NCAA Tournament bid

Men's Basketball: Northwestern receives first-ever NCAA Tournament bid

Nova started the season 14-0 before losing at Big East rival Butler in early January. Playing in their practice uniforms (the real ones were on the plane), they won by 20. But that should not detract from the fact that they piled on 32 wins this season and took the conference title. It is Villanova's second Big East Tournament title in the four years since the new configuration of the Big East. This year's team enters the NCAAs on a roll. The loss foreshadowed struggles to come away from the Carrier Dome - SU finished with a 2-11 record away from home, with its wins coming at North Carolina State and Clemson, two of the bottom four teams in the league.

If you liked the brands of basketball being played in Saturday night's Big East and ACC tournament championship games Saturday night in NY, then you may get to see the winners square in town in two weeks.

If they take care of business in Buffalo against the victor of New Orleans and Mount St. Mary's (the 16-seed play-in game) and later against the victor of No. 9 Virginia Tech and No. 8 Wisconsin, they will play close to home at Madison Square Garden in the Eastern Regional next weekend.

After Saturday's game, senior forward Darryl Reynolds echoed the ethos that head coach Jay Wright has been preaching all season long.

Villanova still has five players who had key roles last March and April - Josh Hart, Kris Jenkins, Darryl Reynolds, Jalen Brunson, and Mikal Bridges. Reynolds told ESPN's Jeff Borzello.

This is a different era, even from the one Florida dominated for those two seasons. You can move forward and free your mind and realize that last year was last year. We need your support to keep our talented reporters, editors and photographers holding government accountable, looking out for the public interest, and separating fact from fiction. Cincinnati was flat-out handled by the Mustangs in a 15-point defeat in that game, but they are 12th according to the RPI and have a 29-4 record on the season. They beat Big Ten champion Purdue at Purdue.




South Dakota State has its NCAA Tournament opponent.

This region also has UCLA being the 3 seed, making this a very daunting path for Kentucky just to get to the Final Four if the Shockers, Bruins and Tar Heels are in their way. Yes, Duke is the No. 2 in Villanova's region.

Gonzaga is the top seed in the West, where Arizona will be the No. 2.

-Syracuse, a controversial bubble team that made it to the Final Four a year ago, was left out this time - its 84 ranking in the RPI and lack of solid road wins dooming its hopes.

So we could see URI and Cal hop into that Last Four In, but any way you slice this Syracuse should not be in the tournament.
