K-State earns No. 9 seed in NCAA tourney, faces Creighton in 1st round

K-State earns No. 9 seed in NCAA tourney, faces Creighton in 1st round

This is UNCG's 3rd NCAA Tournament appearance. That would leave them one behind Duke for the most.

No. 13 TENNESSEE 62, MISSISSIPPI STATE 59:Lamonte Turner scored 15 points and Tennessee locked down on defense to beat Mississippi State in the quarterfinals of the Southeastern Conference tournament in St. Louis. The 11 victories in conference play proved to be the most in Clemson history - tying the all-time record for wins in any conference.

Maye hit a jumper to give North Carolina what seemed like a safe 72-56 lead. "That's what I said to them before the game and that's what I said after because it's unity".

College of Charleston will play Auburn on Friday in San Diego.

The difference in this low-scoring affair was the turnover differential: While UNC only committed nine on the night, UVA took excellent care of the ball, turning it over just four times.

The Cavaliers were one of nine ACC teams to make the NCAA Tournament. Cincinnati's about a four-hour drive from Nashville. Duke, North Carolina, NC State and Wake Forest - have combined to win 52 of the 65 ACC championships.

"If you can't enjoy this with this group of guys, and seeing their heart" said head coach Tony Bennett.

"They got a fast break and I bumped him and fouled him", Allen said during the postgame news conference. "You've got to work for everything you get and then you've gotta go on the other end and work for that".

The Hilltoppers, with 10 wins against teams who have won at least 20 games, missed a chance to get back to first NCAA Tournament since 2013. Rhode Island wound up getting the at-large bid that would have gone to Bonzie Colson and the Fighting Irish.

Past year after North Carolina lost to Duke in the ACC semifinals, the Blue Devils won the ACC but the Tar Heels won the national championship.

It was the school's third ACC tournament win, it's second in this decade. More than that, the squad is a symbolic standard-bearer for a sport that is marked by parity and a tournament that figures to be wide open. Their only league setback, at home to Virginia Tech, was by a point in overtime. He's won 47 NCAA Tournament games, a total that ties John Wooden for seventh on the all-time list.

The Tar Heels (25-10) open Friday in the West Region against 15-seed Lipscomb in Charlotte.

Alcorta, a senior from Springfield, Va., reclaimed the lead for the Tar Heels shortly after receiving the baton and led for almost 1,200 meters.

Pinson had seven of North Carolina's 24 assists on 28 field goals as the Tar Heels cut up Duke's zone most of the night. That included two wins over Duke, a win at Tennessee, a home win against eventual Big Ten Tournament champ MI and a neutral-court win against Ohio State.

Villanova, Kansas and Xavier were named the tournament's other No. 1 seeds.

In 2014, they lost to a Michigan State in the Sweet 16. But if they'd gotten to the Final Four and lost there, the knock would have been that they can't win the big one.

Oh, and Auburn is the No. 4 seed after earning the top seed in the SEC Tournament.

Syracuse was the last team into the field.

Virginia has been a high seed in the NCAA Tournament several times in the past half decade.

Among those is Seton Hall, which will play North Carolina State in the first round. Should Virginia win on Friday, it will face the victor of No. 8 seed Creighton (21-11) and No. 9 seed Kansas State (22-11) in the Round of 32 next Sunday. Foster began his career with the Wildcats.
