Syracuse women's basketball in NCAA tournament as No. 8 seed

Here Are The Biggest Snubs From The 2018 NCAA Tournament Field

There was some early doubt the Sooners would make the NCAA Tournament due to an early exit in the Big 12 Tournament but a strong finish to the regular season helped them make their case.

The No. 10 Oklahoma Sooners will take on the No. 7 Rhode Island Rams in the Midwest Region Round one of the NCAA Tournament March Madness on Thursday, start time at 12:15 PM ET, at PPG Paints Arena, Pittsburgh, PA. Oklahoma vs Rhode Island live stream is on CBS stream. Two consecutive losses against unranked conference opponents on the road set up a huge showdown with then No. 5 Kansas at home as Oklahoma outlasted the Jayhawks 85-80 for their fourth win against a top-10 team. This comes on the heels of MSU earning the highest end of season ranking in program history.

This will be the Sooners' 19th straight year in the tournament. ESPN's Charlie Creme said Oklahoma didn't deserve a bid.

While we were led to believe that the Oklahoma men might be one of the last four teams to make it into the NCAA Men's Tourney, it was actually the Sooner women that owned that dubious distinction. In other words, virtually identical to the Sooners except with one more victory and a better head-to-head record.

Fox's Kurtz: Trump's 'vulgarity' toward Chuck Todd 'not a good look'
Todd , whom Trump derided throughout the campaign as " sleepy eyes Chuck Todd ", responded to Mnuchin with a deadpan tone. While Todd did not refer to the president's insult specifically, he did refer more vaguely to "vulgarity" used by Trump.

The top four teams in the Spokane Region are top-seeded Notre Dame, Oregon, Ohio State and Texas A&M.

Not having Middle Tennessee in the NCAA Tournament is wrong for a lot of wrongs.

After winning the Conference USA tournament in 2016 and 2017, Middle Tennessee lost in an upset to Southern Mississippi in the quarter finals.

Don't forget before the NCAA Tournament begins, you can also play Bracket Games through CBS Sports by creating a pool with your office, family or friends, or filling out your bracket online.
