Multiple NC schools earn bids for NCAA Men's Basketball tournament


Some have been more lasting than others.

North Carolina has been in the National Championship each of the last two seasons. The Cavaliers won the Atlantic Coast Conference regular- season title, added the conference tournament championship Saturday night in Brooklyn and reaped the benefit of both by being named the No. 1 overall seed for the NCAA Tournament.

The Carolinas will send eight teams to the NCAA men's basketball tournament.

North Carolina is going to go on a lot of scoring drought. Georgia Tech also did it, in 1990 and 1993.

The Spartans and Coach Wes Miller are in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2001. And they never lost.

Syrian forces advance against Ghouta rebels
Turkey launched a solo military offensive against the Syrian Kurdish militia known as YPG to clear them from the enclave of Afrin. The Observatory said on Monday that about 511,000 people had been killed since the Syrian war began.

Elmore scored 20 of his 27 points after halftime, with a Conference USA championship game-record seven 3-pointers, and the Thundering Herd are going to their first NCAA Tournament since 1987 after a 67-66 win over Western Kentucky on Saturday night.

Peyton Aldridge sank 6 of 7 3-point attempts and scored 24 points as the third-seeded Wildcats topped the second-seeded Bonnies at Washington. D'Antoni is a Marshall alumnus, and the brother of Houston Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni, who was at the game since his National Basketball Association team was in town to play the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday. But it's there, and Bennett knows it. Notre Dame got no love either for its deep run into the ACC tournament or the return of its best player, Bonzie Colson.

"Each year presents different opportunities and challenges", Bennett said.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski of the Blue Devils told reporters after the game on Friday that his team will be ready for the NCAAs.

"And don't overcomplicate it". You have to win. "That's what we have to do when we step up". "Like you just nearly blew the game for your team, so you have to make them".

Iran will not let its soil be used against Pakistan: Iranian envoy
The premier said Pakistan believed that a peaceful and stable Afghanistan was vital for the economic progress of the region. The Iranian foreign minister is accompanied by a 30-member delegation, including representatives from the business sector.

In 2014, they lost to a Michigan State in the Sweet 16. I feel really grateful that I get the chance to coach these kids and this team. Mr. March? That guy. Transition points. Kenny Williams has been on a tear lately, knocking down points off of pushing up the court.

Allen, a senior, was reprimanded by the ACC for tripping two opponents in his sophomore season.

They still have not won a postseason league tournament since the Big East in 2010. Those three have combined for 39 Final Four appearances. "They don't really have the type of players that are like household names or anything like that, but they just play really good together".

Surprisingly, it was Virginia's methodically probing offense that doomed UNC.

Tar Heels coach Roy Williams got so exasperated by his team he made a wholesale lineup change, all five starters out at once. "Our body of work is pretty good when you think about what we've done in a short amount of time and you look at beating five top-25 teams and winning on the road and a couple wins against the No. 2 team in the country". "If it makes you play defense a little longer to play defense, then he's getting double benefits from it because he's still getting the shot he wants and he's wearing you down a little bit more". Virginia just seems to be more comfortable scoring. "But then you get your seeding and then it starts over".

'Honeymoon period' over for England boss Jones, says Woodward
Jones, reportedly earning £750,000-a-year, reined back from criticising the Premiership, where tries are often easy to come by. We got a lot of good opportunities which we weren't able to finish, but there's lots to be happy with.

"They're really tough-minded. They're really intelligent". They move the ball so well to find the open shot.
