Selection Sunday: The UCLA basketball team is going dancing!

Selection Sunday: The UCLA basketball team is going dancing!

The tournament's first game matches two teams that have yet to win in the NCAA Tournament: LIU Brooklyn is 0-6, Radford 0-2.

"I've had some, I'd say OK memories here", Kellogg said. "Especially with all the T's, there were so many T's".

Outside of its dynamic senior backcourt, though, St. Bonaventure has little depth and height, with only one player-backup center Amadi Ikpeze-standing taller than 6-foot-10.

Saint Bonaventure (+3½) over UCLA: First off, the St. needs to be spelled out now, following the cruel scare thrown into the good people of Olean, N.Y. - so Mike Vaccaro says - because of TBS' infuriating decision to mess with one of the few universally beloved American traditions, and reveal the teams in alphabetical order, only to screw up and list Seton Hall before Saint Bonaventure. Get past them and the Bruins will take on the victor of #3 Texas Tech/#14 Stephen F. Austin.

UCLA IN DAYTON?: Coach Steve Alford, who has led the Bruins to the tournament for the fourth time in five seasons, said he was surprised they were picked last and were sent to Dayton. Arizona's Sean Miller missed the OR game and three practices after ESPN reported he discussed a $100,000 payment to star Deandre Ayton, which the coach has denied.

UCLA did not practice Saturday or Sunday, and Alford said the team would probably leave for OH onMonday morning. The Bruins lost to Kentucky in a regional semi-final last season.

Crosstown rival USC did not receive an at-large bid, despite its second-place showing at the Pac-12 Tournament.

The Bruins and the Trojans aren't the only teams in Southern California to make the NCAA tournament. Holiday a first team selection on the All-PAC-12 and All-defensive teams will have the national spotlight to showcase his game. "We play much better when he's playing and he's healthy, and hopefully we'll have him". Barring major upsets, the Bruins path might mean trying to get through Villanova and Purdue.

"It's a feeling that can't be beat", Welsh said.

Despite losing key players to injury or suspension, federal indictments and missing the NCAA tournament has marred coach Andy Enfield and the Trojans season. "We're just really getting ready to go now for this game on Tuesday".
