Worth the wait: Oklahoma women make NCAA tournament as 12-seed

Worth the wait: Oklahoma women make NCAA tournament as 12-seed

The teams also met in the first round of the 2014 NCAA Tournament with the Blue Demons defeating OU, 104-100.

The NCAA tournament play will begin at 3:40 p.m. with LIU Brooklyn taking on Radford University in the first four, with the tournament concluding on April 2. "They can give me all the talk they want about what they did early, 14-2, but there is no way in the world - if Oklahoma is in, Oklahoma State had to be in the tournament".

If the Cowgirls get past their opening opponent, they would likely pair up against No. 1 seed Mississippi State.

Coale likes the idea of playing in the state of Texas and said "when you lose as many games as we did, you can't be picky on who you're matched up against".

The Orange were selected into the NCAA tournament as the 68th and final team in the field despite entering the day firmly on the bubble.




Junior guard Aaron Holiday has carried the team all season long, and will continue to do so Tuesday when the Bruins take on St. Bonventure (25-7) as the two teams compete to become the last four programs added into the round of 64. "(DePaul is) a hard team to play against because they are an anomaly. The Wildcats ranked tops among power conference schools and fourth nationally in 3-pointers made per game (11.4).

They range from teams that made it into the tournament off the so-called bubble - Alabama - to one of the best teams in the country.

Oklahoma will go as far as Trae Young carries them, so it will try to see if he can carry it past a first-round game against Rhode Island. 'Nova had six players average double figures this season.

The slate included four teams - No. 1 Connecticut, No. 2 Baylor, No. 6 OR and No. 8 Texas - that are firmly in the Final Four OR national title picture. The Big 12 is one of the strongest conferences in the country this season. The games in November, December count the same as the games in February and March. The USC Trojans finished second in the Pac 12. The committee will never admit that, but it was Young's charisma that got Oklahoma in the tournament, not the Sooners' suspect body of work. "But the perseverance that they've showed this year and especially over the last 48, 72 hours. we've played ourselves hopefully (into) the tournament".

But the keepers of college basketball will be more than happy to have folks investigating the logic of tournament snubs rather than discussing the FBI investigation that has besmirched the sport.
