The wait has officially come to an end. Things are different now and UCLA has to get ready for March Madness. UNC beat the Bulldogs previous year in the national title game.

The Big East Tournament champion Wildcats (30-4) earned yet another top seed in the NCAA Tournament and will open the East Region on Thursday in Pittsburgh against the victor of the LIU Brooklyn-Radford game.

The victor of the Jays-Wildcats matchup would likely face No. 1 overall seed Virginia in the second round.

Virginia (31-2 overall) went 17-1 in the ACC and paired its regular season title with a victory in the ACC Tournament last week in Brooklyn, New York.

Providence's tournament resume was bolstered by a 10-8 record in BIG EAST play and a 3-3 record against top-five ranked teams.

It's clear the NCAA Tournament selection committee wasn't quite sure how to judge the strength of the SEC when making out the field of 68. The Horned Frogs also made the tournament this year. He did so when Chuck Person was still his associate head coach and Danjel Purifoy and Austin Wiley were two of the Tigers' top returning players.

"I think our guys are excited as well as they should be". We had made a good enough run previous year where we could taste it, but we didn't finish with free throws or defense or transition defense or rebounding or ending plays.

However, we buy into Coach Cal having his team ready as the tourney arrives. Several No. 16's have given the top team a scare, but not one of them has yet to walk off the court victorious in this tournament against the top dog.

Virginia, which began the season unranked in The Associated Press poll, might be considered the prohibitive favorite, as much as the notoriously anarchic tournament can be said to have one.

The bid is Auburn's ninth all-time, with the first of those coming in 1984.

DON'T FORGET: Butler. The Bulldogs are no stranger to deep runs in the tournament, though the No. 10 seed is a little low compared with recent history.

"We're very excited to be in the NCAA Tournament". It's hard to believe that Wofford visited Chapel Hill and beat this team in December, but the Tar Heels collected themselves and have hit their stride, especially since the beginning of February. "It's a great opportunity".

The Golden Eagles instead will be a No. 2 seed in the 32-team National Invitation Tournament (NIT). It's just the third time the Spartans will play in the NCAA Tournament. Five different players average at least 10.5 points per game and those players routinely take - and make - high-quality shots. The only loss was in triple overtime to St. Bonaventure. You never know what happens in that room.
