The decision isn't sitting well with some folks, like analyst Dick Vitale. Defensively they are much better than Arizona State, ranking 11 nationally in adjusted defensive numbers.
But none of those teams feature Trae Young, the Oklahoma point guard who leads the nation in points and assists per game and is nearly a lock to go in the lottery of the 2018 NBA Draft. TBS analyst Clark Kellogg began the discussion Sunday by asking Rasmussen how the committee evaluated the Sooners, who were given a No. 10 seed.
You can bet the NCAA was thrilled that the three letters most talked about in regard to college basketball on Sunday were RPI and not Federal Bureau of Investigation. "When you beat a team that is in the top 30 of the RPI ... if the name was different, everybody would be excited". They had some absolutely great wins. They were too good to fail the field, plus Arizona got an automatic bid by virtue of winning the Pac-12 tournament title.
SU did just that, including knocking off then-No. URI won its first game as a No. 8 seed in 1993, downing Purdue, and reached the Elite Eight as a No. 8 seed in 1998 after upsetting the top-seeded Jayhawks in the Midwest Region.

"I know I'm a dummy - I know I can't spell, I know I can't read, I can't write, I have no math skills - but I want someone to explain this to me", Vitale said.
Take Oklahoma for example: Sure, the Sooners got off to a hot start to the season and were even considered one of the best teams in the country through their non-conference schedule.
"I think it is a disgrace, I think it is an embarrassment, and it's a humiliation to what this tournament's about".
Disappointed? You bet I am.
