The 2018 NIT Bracket Has Been Released

Syracuse forward Matthew Moyer and Notre Dame forward Martinas Geben battle for a ball during a game Saturday Jan. 6 2018 at the Carrier Dome UConn Selected as No. 1 Seed in Albany Region

Texas, which finished the season with a 26-6 record, is the 2-seed in the Kansas City region. If Notre Dame advances, the Irish would head out west to potentially face No. 2 seed OR if the seeds hold.

Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said she doesn't see it as that big a deal.

Tennessee AthleticsThe Tennessee Volunteers are the only school with the same seed (No. 3) in both the men's and women's NCAA Tournaments.

FiveThirtyEight gives them a 65-percent chance to win the entire tournament.

"You kind of feel you're in the tournament now", Brey said. "Its been about 20 years since we had back-to-back NCAA appearances, so I'm very proud of my players, my staff and the entire Marquette community". He improved that figure to 19.3 this year while also grabbing 7.5 boards per game.

QB Case Keenum plans to sign with Broncos
Denver is in the market for a quarterback after going through last season with Trevor Siemian , Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch . Elway had said early in the offseason "for us to have a chance to get better we have to get better at that position".

The Irish got off to a strong start, outscoring the Pirates 23-16 after the first quarter.

Notre Dame won at Syracuse. The games will begin Friday. While many pundits will claim you should listen to their insider experience to win your March Madness pool, with so many teams from completely different parts of the country coming together for a single elimination tournament, the results are often a crapshoot at best.

It's still going to be a fun tournament, though.

The tournament's other No. 1 seeds are Louisville, Mississippi State and Notre Dame. That's because we have 63 games ahead of us and a whole lot of time on our couches doing nothing but watching games and avoiding social interaction.

Jermaine Marrow had 21 points to lead the Bears.

Kirk Cousins to make decision on new team this week
The Jets are considered one of the four finalists to land Cousins, along with the Vikings, Broncos , and Cardinals . That said, trusting Keenum, who was a one-year wonder in Pat Shurmur's system, was a risky proposition.

From there the Irish didn't look back. The senior added six rebounds, one assist and one steal. "I would imagine Notre Dame had 34 games".

UConn coach Geno Auriemma said the respect for those teams is a step forward in the women's game and he believes mid-major teams will make some noise in this year's tournament.

The Irish led 66-43 after the third quarter, leaving no doubt about the outcome of the game. Three Eagles-sophomore guard Ky Bowman and junior guards Jerome Robinson and Jordan Chatman-combined to score 76 of the Eagles' points in an 89-84 victory.

Deep senior role players Matt Gregory and Liam Nelligan even scored, bringing the 2,101-person crowd to its feet for the loudest cheer of the night.

No. 2 seed OR has never made the Final Four, and No. 3 Ohio State last made the Elite Eight 25 years ago. The time for that game is set for Saturday at noon, still at Purcell Pavilion.

Palestinian Prime Minister's convoy hit by explosion in Gaza; Fatah blames Hamas
The Prime Minister was not hurt in the incident in the Gaza Strip, which he rarely visits, according to The Independent . A statement from Hamas also condemned the attack but likewise condemned the response from Palestinian Authority .

We didn't really worry about the new rules, we just wanted to go out and do what we do. I thought we defended well against a team that's a pretty good offensive group. Temple beat Wichita State.
