Here are some quick thoughts about the field:
- How is Miami not a number 1 seed. They won the ACC regular season and tournament title and they are only a 2 seed. Would that have happened if this was UNC or Duke.
- The committee must hate Larry Scott the Pac 12. How does the Pac 12 tournament champion, Oregon, ended up with a 12 seed. A 12 seed from a power conference is usually saved for one of the last at-large bids from a power league, not a tournament champion that was ranked for most of the year.
- A couple of upsets: Colorado over Illinois; Ole Miss over Wisconsin; and Oregon over Okie State.
- Players that America will get to know: Colorado guard Spencer Dinwiddie and Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson.
