Oklahoma women's basketball: Sooners receive No. 12 seed in NCAA Tournament

College basketball fans all knew why Trae Young and Oklahoma made the tournament

Villanova, Kansas and Xavier joined Virginia as No. 1 seeds, but they, along with the other 64 contenders, will play against the backdrop of an investigation-riddled season in which bribes and payoffs made bigger headlines than 3s and layups. But Butler (20-13, 40 RPI) has an important Quadrant 1 win in the regular season over the Wildcats on its resume.

"We're very excited", URI guard E.C. Matthews said. We're looking forward to ASU playing Syracuse Wednesday night in one of the First Four games - the Sun Devils are favored by two points per Bovada.

After bubble teams USC, Oklahoma State and Louisville were all left out of the tournament, a conspiracy theory was launched that the selection committee avoided those schools due to the controversy surrounding them.

OSU lost 79-76 at Mississippi State on December 3, which was the closest anyone had played the defending champion Bulldogs all season until they lost to SC in the SEC Tournament last week. "That's something you want to leave behind as a senior, so I'm glad I could do that".

"I see no logic". The choice for the final spot was between Oklahoma and Rutgers and the Sooners won out, largely on the strength of playing the nation's second most hard schedule.

"Oklahoma State beats Kansas twice. This is something I dreamed about as a kid and I just had a bunch of emotions running through my body, so I couldn't do anything but just sit there and pray", said OU star Trae Young. "To tell you the truth, it frustrates the hell out of me". However, the Cowboys won the head-to-head battle 2-1, another important factor, and their win in the conference tournament could reasonably have been viewed as the trump card.

Fellow ESPN analyst Jay Bilas chimed in on First Take, Monday morning. While many have voiced their displeasure with Oklahoma making it in, Oklahoma can silence a lot of criticism with a first-round win. But at the end of the day, the selection committee decided they wanted Young, one of the nation's most talented and entertaining players, in the Big Dance.
