I've never understood play-ins for an 11 seed. Silly example this year being the Pac-12 reps.
Washington gets a 9 seed, best record in the conference but doesn't win conference tournament.
Arizona State has a play-in game, after the 2nd best record in the conference- wins, has an 11 seed
Oregon goes on an 8 game winning streak to finish the season, including beating Arizona State once and Washington twice, the conference championship game beating them badly....they get a 12.
Now, I understand by overall record, but normally being hot coming in also helps.

Another minor quirk; if a team wins their conference tournament championship, it's supposed to be an autobid. NDSU did that yet had to play a play-in game. How is that an autobid?

Because the committee looks at SOS. Not for one second are you going to tell me NDSU deserves to be ranked higher because they are lucky enough to play in a garbage division. Other teams had a stronger body of work. To reward teams just because they win their conference is a terrible way to rank.

Oregon got hot, Washingtonís out of conference schedule was hard. Arizona State out of conference was hard. Oregon is lucky to be in because their body of work was not impressive. They took advantage of a fairly weak pac12.

re Oregon, I'm aware they wouldn't likely have been in the tournament w/o winning their conference tournament. It just looked odd to me that they'd beat Washington twice in a week, including beating them by 20 the night before selections, had won 8 in a row...and only got a 12 while Washington got a 9. You just don't normally see power 5 conference champs getting a 12 seed.

If Oregon played a better out of conference schedule they would of been ranked higher. The importance of SOS and RPI especially in non conference games plays a huge factor in seeding.

Also the pac12 has been down for years, it used to be one of the better conferences but now....itís the worst out of the power 5, and definitely worse than the AAC and Big East. They are slightly better than the Mountain West because up and down they are better, but not their top teams.

Wofford for example. I bet no one can tell me another team in their conference. Let alone what conference they are in. They went 18-0 in conference play. Grabbed a 7th seed. Pac12 winner gets a 12 seed finishing 3rd in the conference. Wofford lost 4 games. Oklahoma, UNC, Kansas, Mississippi St.

Oregon seed is lower than I suspected donít get me wrong. But Woffors beat the teams they were supposed to and lost to teams that boasted their RPI.

Very true. As an Oregon fan I just think we were not great at the beginning of the season. We were too reliant on Bol and his hype and we didn't have a cohesive idea of what we wanted to be. Him getting injured was a blessing in disguise. I've always felt Dana Altman is a good coach and his teams get better as the season goes along, but the one and done fad sort of ruined his coaching to start the year.

We'll see if we can get past Wisconsin, it'll be tough but we've been lights out defensively in the past 10 games or so.

Altman is the man. Oregon also has a young team too. I know there are talks about Bol leaving, but if he returns for a year and dominates he is a top 5 pick. If Bol returns with the guards who were 4 stars, and end up with whaat might be the best class in the nation. This team will be a top 5 team for the foreseeable future.

Well we dominated Wisconsin in the 2nd half so that's a good sign. We now face UC Irvine, which is possibly the only team hotter than the Ducks riding a 17 game winning streak. Should be a great 12 v 13 game.

I had no idea Oregon was close to the top recruiting class in Basketball.

I worry about their size. They're elite but big teams can abuse them and Hunter, while a great college player, hasn't turned into what I thought he could be last year yet - which is a go-to scorer.

I thought Bol Bol had already announced he was leaving...but he also has a loss of value policy if his injury drops him in the draft and if that isn't for enough he may return to build his value. The Ducks definitely had to reinvent themselves after he went down, but appear to have done just that. I had just gone into this year thinking the team might do what the 2015-6 team couldn't...losing Bol greatly reduced the expectations so getting to the Sweet 16 would still be great.

I didn't watch the entire game, so I'm sure I missed some stuff.
Watched the first half, went and ran errands then watched the last 3 mins or so.
Couldn't believe neither of UCFs last second shots went in, especially the follow tip with about 2 sec left.

I also think it's crazy that there is only one team higher than 5 still left going into the sweet 16. Usually there are a few. And for every 1-2-3 seed to still be in it seems super rare.

Yet suddenly the Zags are now down 2 with 22.1 seconds left as I typeduring the block and the save, his feet were not out of bounds. with the block he was clearly in bound, he did step on the line before he made the save. But when he made the save he was (his feet body) in mid air so that doesn't count as out of bounds.

refs might have ****ed up. i think the tap back off the ft miss was a backcourt violation. okete made the tying shot at the buzzer but should not have counted possibly. not so sure though.

during the block and the save, his feet were not out of bounds. with the block he was clearly in bound, he did step on the line before he made the save. But when he made the save he was (his feet body) in mid air so that doesn't count as out of bounds.

not true....once he stepped out of bounds he was out of bounds until he reestablished himself inbounds again....which he hadn't.....so he would still be considered out of bounds even tho he was in the air when he knocked the ball to his teammate

The only reason I watch NCAA, which is otherwise boring and awful basketball, is to watch players like Zion.

If Duke loses, no one will care about the Final Four. I'd expect the ratings to plummet big time.

I actually think its closer to pure basketball. I like the style better, same with european/fiba ball. The only thing about college is since prospects started bolting earlier, the talent level has decreased. If more talent stayed to be refined vs. chasing the money (understandable), the product would be better s well, Personally though, I don't care about the talent level, I still like better vs. nba.

It's more unpredictable and easier to watch since there's way more parity involved and because it's a one-and-done format. But the quality of basketball is a lot worse.

Coach K is definitely not the best coach of all time. He benefits from hype and being allowed to coach team USA. That's why he's able to get the best recruits. Tom Izzo proved to be a superior coach with lesser talent but a more disciplined team.

you find 'quality' in the NBA game? It's streetball with biased and inconsistent officiating....and players who are harder and harder to get behind whether it's because they're colluding to form super teams or they're fathering 10 kids

This is false. Izzo had a veteran team and it showed. Coach K did great when he had veteran teams, he also won a title with a 1 and done team a few years back. Look at the teams in the final 4, they are all veteran teams that have been together a few years.

I love college basketball. Itís more about coaching then the NBA is. Systems, styles, offense, defense. No surprise Jay Wright with his 4 out offense last year, and now Virginia pace of play are the teams. Itís a beauty to watch if your are a pure basketball fan.

refs just called a defensive foul on a play where the only contact was the offensive player putting his arm into the defensive player.

what a horrible use of replay. the Rules need to be changed. you shouldn't be able to knock the ball out of bounds and it be off the offensive player.

Huh? If replay shows itís off a hand it should be called as such. If there is any doubt then the call would stand.

I can't dispute it is the right call, but if that play happened at any other juncture where replay couldn't be used Texas Tech gets the ball and Virginia doesn't even argue the call. I wonder how often you could slow down a ball that gets knocked out like that and the offensive player is the last to touch it. I literally have no idea, but I can guarantee you that that ball goes to Texas Tech 100% of the time without replay. they probably need a rule change. the rules weren't created so you could in HD slow mow check if the ball hit a the pinky of the player holding the ball.

It's out of bounds on whoever touched the ball last. It was the correct call so the replay worked.

how do you view it as the correct call when there was NO replay that REMOTELY confirmed it was justified to overturn that......and that possession turned the game in VA's favor
