Which Area Teams Made The NCAA Tournament?
Prior to tonight's announcement of this year's field of 68 teams competing in the NCAA Division 1 Men's Basketball Tournament, we already knew a few things...
- Defending National Champion, Villanova, had won their way into the tournament by winning the Big East tournament.
- These area teams would not make the tournament: Princeton, Rutgers, Rider, LaSalle and Penn.
Temple will take on Belmont (located in Nashville) on Tuesday night at 9:10pm in Dayton, OH. The winner of that game will play Maryland on Thursday in Jacksonville, FL.
