Nebraska basketball chances remain unknown on Selection Sunday

And who knows which criteria will weigh the most with each committee member as he or she types four names into the computer in front of them to be compiled for the bracket.

That may or may not be the case.

FSU was bounced from the NCAA Tournament a year ago in the second round against No. 11 seed Xavier.

After all, there's really nothing more he or his team can do now. While this may be a wide-open tournament, it may be quite hard for anyone to get the best of head coach Tony Bennett's team.

So it will be an anxious Sunday in Louisville, where the Cardinals are 48 hours removed from a 17-point loss to expected No. 1 overall seed Virginia in the ACC Tournament.

I've done that from tournament to tournament, I still need to get a little more tournament time, I think I've done that. I drove it well, hit a lot of good iron shots.

Carolina's fairly recent switch to a small ball lineup (starting Cam Johnson and playing jack-of-all-trades Theo Pinson at the four) made them a potent offensive team and sparked their surge in February. The 10-member committee uses a plethora of metrics to sort, rank and seed the 68-team field, and the quandrants bring the numbers together.

First off, the selection show will not be televised on CBS as it has been since 1982.

Never mind that Turner and CBS also are collaborating on a four-hour pre-selection show streaming via YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, and Bleacher Report beginning at 2 p.m.

The Villanova Wildcats have been at or near the top of the rankings for the majority of the season. In the quadrant system a road win average Power 5 team has more value than it did in previous years. Before the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament, they won 12 straight games and are now 25-7 on the season. They are quarterbacked by Aaron Holiday, who led the Pac-12 in scoring (20.3 points per game).

Buffalo 76, Toledo 66 - Wes Clark led Buffalo with 26 points in the MAC championship game.

Charlize Theron's mum bought her edible marijuana to help sleep issues
Little did she know, her mom was about to be more than proactive. "I have really bad sleep [patterns] and so does my mom". But Theron was shocked when she discovered that her mother had gone out and done the marijuana shopping all by herself.

"What Jalen does isn't always appreciated publicly", Wright said, per Lindsay Schnell of USA Today.

The 2018 NCAA Tournament Selection Show will take place Sunday night and FSU basketball will be anxiously waiting to see if they'll be making the tournament for the second consecutive year.

But the Longhorns won some key late regular season games over Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and West Virginia, and then knocked off Iowa State in the first round of the Big 12 tournament to make a case for an NCAA tournament berth with a 19-14 record. Here are two big ones: What seed will K-State earn?

Since the conference tournament was held a week earlier than usual, the Spartans will be well-rested when they play their first-round game.

Tom Izzo has spoiled Spartan fans, and this year is no exception. I am looking for the committee to shock us again as they do every year!

Should we go to year-round daylight saving time?
The most common argument for keeping daylight saving time is that it positively manipulates the sense of daytime for most people. Let's hope that 2018 is the past year we lose an hour of sleep to "save" an hour of sunlight at the end of the day.

Having sat in on the mock bracket process, I think people sometimes forget the "eye test". "But I think we're capable of it".
