The University at Buffalo is back in the NCAA Tournament for the third time in four years. Calipari all but said United Kingdom will have to try to advance in the NCAA Tournament without Vanderbilt.
"You come into a team where they finish last place".
Johnson replaced Anthony Grant, who Virginia Tech fans will remember from his days as VCU's head coach. Kentucky will be making its fifth straight appearance in the tourney. Alabama has guys like Donta Hall, Dazon Ingram and Braxton Key to negate Virginia Tech's advantage on the glass. Tech made the NIT when Wilson was a junior. Even without freshman Jarred Vanderbilt, the 'Cats rolled through the SEC Tournament and have only one loss since Valentine's Day. I spent a lot of time talking to (Purdue coach) Matt Painter, who's a close friend of mine, just some of the thoughts on how we should schedule right away, because it's a fine line.
"It's hard to flush that, but we've got something big to look forward to", said Schofield. "I wanted to be a part of ... rebuilding the program". "It's just a blessing to be in this position". The past week has arguably been Arizona's best stretch of play this season.
The show began by listing the 68 teams in the field.
Penn won the Ivy League to earn an automatic bid Sunday, and so did Kentucky in the Southeastern Conference. Defensively, Virginia Tech yields 71.8 points per game against the opposing teams.
"It was very bad", Bibbs said of the wait. He played for Oak Hill Academy, and he was listed with a Virginia Tech offer out of high school. It allows 34.5 percent from long distance to rank 151st among Division I teams. But Tech was a safe bet to make the NCAAs this year.
Lisa Bonet opens up about Bill Cosby's "sinister" energy

Arizona coach Sean Miller and UA players were not available for comment Sunday - though Miller has a media press conference scheduled for Monday - but UA players said after their 75-61 win over USC on Saturday that they hoped their roster issues may have been taken into consideration. Williams' squad lost to Notre Dame in the ACC Tournament and dropped a home game against Louisville toward the end of the season. "I think that's valuable".
If the Cavaliers lock down the top-overall seed, where they play their first two rounds is ultimately up to their discretion. "You would rather that happen in the conference tournament than the NCAA Tournament".
G Herbert Jones (6-7, 200, Fr.): 33 games, 11 starts. Alabama is a sleeper pick of mine, if only because the Crimson Tide are wildly unpredictable, but when they're on - they're molten. Kentucky beat Alabama 86-63 in the semifinals.
They don't just play defense, they've revolutionized it, suffocating opponents and sucking the air out of games.
Alabama has also beaten Tennessee, Florida, Oklahoma and Rhode Island. Freshman phenom Collin Sexton led Alabama with an average of 19 points and 3.5 assists per game while Donta Hall led the Tide in rebounding with 6.8 boards per game this season.
