NCAA Bracket 2018: South Region

Oklahoma Sooners point guard Trae Young

That, combined with great metrics allowed Hokie fans to relax in the lead-up to Selection Sunday while teams below them in the ACC were more nervous today. The selection committee revealed the full group on Selection Sunday, and as expected, the Huskers were left out. The Tigers finished sixth in the SEC conference this season.

The Jayhawks (27-7) will head to Wichita next week to begin their run in this year's Big Dance and they will face 16th-seeded Penn (24-8) in their first game on Thursday.

All season, the Villanova Wildcats were considered one of the top favorites to make a run in the 2018 NCAA Tournament, and rightfully so when looking at how risky Jay Wright's team has looked, especially from beyond the arc.

"I wouldn't say pressure is the word", leading scorer Kyle Guy said after Saturday night's win against North Carolina in the ACC Tournament title game.

No teams from the District of Columbia made the field of 68, and the only school representing Maryland is UMBC.

North Carolina opened last year's NCAA Tournament in Greenville, South Carolina, on the way to the national title and played its first two games in Raleigh in 2016.

Unfortunately, those things have haunted the Noles the past two years. Villanova, Kansas and Xavier joined Virginia as No. 1 seeds, but they, along with the other 64 contenders, will play against the backdrop of an investigation-riddled season in which bribes and payoffs made bigger headlines than 3s and layups. The games can also be live streamed at The Bearcats are the No. 2 seed, and have the No. 2 defense in the country, behind Virginia.

The Rams are 7-9 all-time in the NCAA Tournament. The top-seeded Cavaliers are going to be one of the last teams standing. "We're fresh", Bryce Brown said. They also have what many would consider to be the weakest No. 3 seed in the tournament in Tennessee.

Purdue (28-6) is the No. 2 seed and plays 15th-seeded Cal State Fullerton. The quadrant's bottom half features second-seeded Duke, a perennial championship contender, and third-seeded Michigan State (29-4), among college basketball's most balanced teams. Tony Bennett's squad has been dominant all season.

As our editor-in-chief Jason McIntyre and Yahoo reporter Pat Forde have observed, it sure seems like USC - along with Louisville and Oklahoma State - were dinged on the margins of the Dance due to their involvement in the much-ballyhooed FBI investigation.

Davidson is 21-11 on the season, with an impressive win over ranked Rhode Island in their conference championship. "At Tulsa, I remember one of our players, when we were getting ready to watch, saying, 'OK, just not 8 or 9 in the East, ' because that's when Duke was 32-0". For bubble teams such as Arizona State, Louisville, Syracuse, Baylor, Marquette and St. Mary's, that's a problem.
