Curry was not with the Warriors (51-16) on their two-game road trip after he suffered a right ankle injury earlier this week during Golden State's 110-107 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.

Texas was seeded No. 39 by the tournament selection committee.

The Oklahoma Sooners have won two games since February 1. The knock on Saint Mary's resume was a lack of signature victories over the course of the season, but the Gaels were ranked as high as No. 11 in the country at one point.

Oklahoma last played on March 3, losing 90-83 to TCU in the quarterfinal round of the Big 12 Women's Tournament. The Sooners' 26 NCAA Tournament appearances since 1984 are the 10th most in the nation during that span, behind only Kansas, Duke, North Carolina, Arizona, Connecticut, Kentucky, Michigan State, Syracuse and UCLA. March Madness is upon us as 68 teams have now punched their tickets to the 2018 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.
