This is Rhode Island's 10th NCAA Tournament appearance.

With the season coming to a close this weekend, Oklahoma's hopes of playing in the NCAA tournament are uncertain after losing eight of its last 10 and falling to Oklahoma State in the Big 12 Tournament. "It's an honor, we're very, very grateful and excited to play a very talented Texas A&M team".

The NCAA operates the NIT, and each higher-seeded team hosts the first three rounds in its home arena. They have lost 8 of their past 10 games. The Bears are one of four top seeds.

Oklahoma started the season 14-2, rising to No. 4 in the nation before a precipitous drop.

When the bracket was unveiled on Sunday, committee chair Bruce Rasmussen pointed at Oklahoma's quality wins early in the season as being enough to get the Sooners in the field.

Oklahoma is led by point guard Trae Young, one of the most electric players in college basketball. That gave them an advantage over numerous other teams on the bubble. The Cowboys became the first team to sweep both regular season games against Kansas in Jayhawks coach Bill Self's 15 seasons.

"We weren't quite as close to the bubble as we thought we were", Boynton said. URI received a 7-seed in the Midwest Region, and faces Oklahoma (18-13) out of the Big 12 in Pittsburgh. "We play in the best league in America, without question".
