On Sunday night, the Bonnies (25-7) found out that they will face UCLA in a "play-in" game at Dayton University.

No 16 seed has ever upset a No. 1 seed, but the victor of Tuesday's game between the LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds and the Radford Highlanders will keep its dream of being the first to do so alive.

"It's a tough time for us", Alford said. "All of a sudden the selection show is over and we're like, 'We're probably leaving in the morning'".

St. Bonaventure doesn't have any shockingly good wins this season, per say. LiAngelo Ball also was suspended and withdrew from school.

No. 3 UCLA vs.

"Four months ago we're sitting in China and not knowing what's going on and what's happening", Alford said.

The Bruins have a long standing history of success in the NCAA Tournament. In fact, the Bruins should be ready to make a big run in the Big Dance.

Seminoles return to NCAA tournament, will open against Missouri
The Seminoles' season was one of close wins and close losses, but they're not heading into the NCAA Tournament with much momentum. The Seminoles made the tournament last season and advanced to the second round before being ousted by Xavier.

After playing in No. 1 overall seed UConn's region for the past two seasons, UCLA is the No. 3 seed in the Kansas City Regional, governed by top-seeded Mississippi State, and has a chance to advance to its third straight Sweet 16 by hosting the first two rounds.

The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament is set to begin tonight with the First Four at UD Arena in Dayton, Ohio. One of the Bonnies' biggest concerns is Courtney Stockard, who suffered a hamstring injury during the Atlantic 10 Tournament. UCLA is 13-2 in Pauley Pavilion this season, losing only to UConn and Pac-12 champion Oregon. Coach Mark Schmidt said Monday that it'll be a game-time decision.

The last two years, SportsLine's computer simulation correctly predicted nine out of 12 double-digit NCAA Tournament upsets in the first round with their computer algorithm. In order for St. Bonaventure to reach the true field of 64, one team stands in their way, the UCLA Bruins. The Bonnies lost their opening game in their last three NCAA Tournament appearances in 1978, 2000 and 2012.

The Bruins participation in the tournament means their players will miss at least three days of classes in the final week of instruction in the winter quarter.

FAMILIAR ARENA PART 2: LIU Brooklyn coach Derek Kellogg was sacked by MA last season after losing to St. Bonaventure in the A-10 tournament.

St. Bonaventure's at-large hopes were boosted by victories over Syracuse and Maryland. His oldest son, Nate, is a junior guard at Bucknell, which won the Patriot League's bid.
