URI taking on 10-seed Oklahoma, Providence College facing 7-seed Texas A&M in NCAA Tournament

The Sooners take on Rhode Island on Thursday at 11:15 a.m.

Overall, the A-10 saw three teams get into the tournament.

Oklahoma finished the season 3-of-12, and there were questions about whether the team deserved to be in the tournament at all, but the selection committee decided its resume was strong enough for a spot.

And Oklahoma State was left out, even though it piled up several quality wins - including a final one last week against Oklahoma in the Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City. They had some absolutely great wins. "A long year, and we've had the extremes all in one season.very good play to less than that by a lot".

Journal sports writers Kevin McNamara and Bill Koch will break down the matchups this week for both PC and URI as well as report live on both teams on and on Twitter as the Rams and Friars open NCAA Tournament play. The Sooners finished with a losing record in the Big 12 and were knocked out of their conference tournament in the first round and yet they still received an at-large bid over more deserving schools like USC, St. Mary's and Notre Dame. Since 1986 (his first season as head coach at Kansas State), Kruger has never missed the postseason in consecutive seasons.
