USA Tournament 2018: Bracket, schedule, scores, teams, and more

Is Michigan State's March magic in danger of running out in 2018?

The inaugural Big Ten Tournament at MSG "worked", as numerous league's fan bases "turned out well, so much so that Saturday marked the tournament's first session sellout" since the "14 Big Ten title game, according to Zach Osterman of the INDIANAPOLIS STAR".

For Michigan and Michigan State, there is no doubt about inclusion in the field.

Until then, just enjoy the next few days of college basketball and let the chips fall where they may. They've got good shooters.

The path is harder for Louisville and Notre Dame. There are four more days until the top 68 teams will be picked for the national championship, and the anticipation is going wild and the fever is starting to begin.

In what has been a tumultuous season for the Pac-12, beginning with the still-ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation probe and some misbehavior in China, the league's 12 teams meet in Las Vegas to determine who will earn the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. Next up: a chance to get to 20 wins on Wednesday against Virginia Tech (21-10, 51 RPI).

Over recent years, the NCAA has inched forward with expanding the field of 64 to 65, and now, 68.

Tennessee wants to make sure the jubilant atmosphere that followed its regular-season finale isn't its last celebration. "There is always a certain amount of confusion over which teams, especially those on the bubble, will be selected and which will be left out", Jacobson said.

MI leads the Big Ten and is eighth in the nation in points allowed (63.6 per game).

"Baylor: Could sneak in without a win over West Virginia on Thursday, but don't bet on it".

The Cowboys are in a similar spot as the Bears in that they weren't supposed to be in this spot a month ago.

Ah, but that's going to change this year. Pretty good for a team that was picked to finish sixth in the ACC during the preseason. But after Saturday's loss at Florida, the Wildcats fell out for the third time this season. At 18-13 they can't lose to Iowa State tomorrow, but that could be thrown in doubt. Farrell missed the first game with a bad ankle.

The NCAA Tournament is a place to solidify legend.

Oklahoma State entered its Big 12 slate at 10-2, but conference play wasn't kind to the Cowboys. After two losses at the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament, Purdue has managed 19 consecutive wins and ranks very highly in offensive and defensive efficiency. I don't think it's more evident than in college basketball, where crowd noise replaces the piped-in music that is prevalent at NBA games.

It would seem with 32 automatic bids and 36 at-large bids to play with that the regular-season champion on every level would get the automatic bid, making the regular season mean something again.

Like any team, MI has its Achilles heel, but the versatile threats that Beilein has at his disposal night in and night out should frighten any team going up against the Wolverines over the next couple weeks. Texas A&M beat Alabama by just two in a hard-fought game in the last game of the season. Keep in mind that road ATS mark since obviously there are no true home games in the Big Dance so the Huskers could be a wise wager. They just have just a lot of different options. Unfortunately, that was the only quality win the Cornhuskers would get.
