Before the day ends, we’ll know what 68 teams have made the field for the NCAA Tournament. There are a lot of teams that are awfully nervous heading into the announcement, sitting squarely on the tournament bubble. Bracketologists have prognosticated who they think is in and who is out. What do we think? Here are the four teams we think will be deemed the “Last Four In.”
Northern Iowa’s senior power forward Seth Tuttle was named the Larry Bird Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year on Tuesday. Tuttle finished ahead of a talented list of players that included Wichita State’s Fred VanVleet and Ronnie Baker; all three were named First-Team MVC.
After battling back from a 10-point second-half deficit, Texas upset No. 14 Baylor in OT, 61-59. A bench-clearing scuffle at the 2:06 mark in overtime resulted in the ejection of seven players: John Heard, Johnathan Motley and Ishmail Wanwright for Baylor and Cam Ridley, Connor Lammert, Kendal Yancy, and Prince Ibeh for Texas.
Leading the country in the category, Texas held a block party, stuffing the Bears 12 times. Texas’s Isaiah Taylor who survived ejection after engaging in a scuffle with Baylor’s Royce O’Neale, went on to hit the game winner runner with 5 seconds to play in overtime.
