NCAA bubble burst for Notre Dame and Louisville

Irene MckinneyMar 12, 2018

Sunday's edition of the "March Madness Selection Show", the annual unveiling of the 68 men's basketball teams that made the NCAA Tournament and the brackets in which they will play, will have a new look, as well as a new home.

Creighton's headed back to the NCAA Tournament for a second straight year, beginning their Road To The Final Four (or less ambitiously, Road To The Second Weekend) in Charlotte against Kansas State.

North Carolina, the No. 2 seed, opens against Lipscomb in Charlotte and No. 3 MI faces Montana in Wichita, Kansas.

The SEC Tournament has been a boon for Alabama (19-14), which entered riding a five-game losing streak and teetering on the brink of the NCAA Tournament bubble. It still starts at 6 p.m. EDT. The "First Four" play-in games will take place Tuesday and Wednesday in Dayton, Ohio.

Syracuse: The Orange (20-13) likely were the last team eliminated a year ago from the NCAA Tournament - they were tabbed the top seed in the NIT. The ACC was the only conference with more qualifiers, nine. Worse yet, TBS has said that rather than unveil the teams as the selection committee bracketed, they'll first announce all the teams, then how they're paired. If those four teams all reach the Sweet 16, it will two great matchups. The Retrievers upset Vermont in the America East Conference title game Saturday 65-62 on a late 3-pointer. The other schools - Louisville, Oklahoma State, South Carolina and USC - did not make it as at-large teams.

Penn won the Ivy League to earn an automatic bid Sunday, and so did Kentucky in the Southeastern Conference.
