"I told our players, everybody can play if they're in there", Bennett said. The Seminoles open against Missouri, which makes 9.3 3-pointers per game but commits a dangerously high 14.1 turnovers. In a shocker, Arizona potentially will play No. 5 seed Kentucky in the second round if the Wildcats get past Buffalo. Due to the early start of the Big Ten tournament this season, the Buckeyes (24-8) will have a 12-day gap between games before facing the Summit League-champion Jackrabbits.
If Syracuse defeats Arizona State, they will play No. 6 TCU on Friday. Tennessee, which tied Auburn for the conference title in the regular season, earned a 3 seed. The Gators improbably reached the Elite Eight a season ago when a Chris Chiozza buzzer beater lifted them over Wisconsin in the Sweet 16.
Blueitt's return was a huge boon to the Musketeers.

They will host seventh-seeded Harvard on campus at the Al McGuire Center Wednesday at 6 p.m. However, it is hard to deny that the Tar Heels are a very good, well rounded club.
Before we begin, take note that over the 20 years, there have been some undeniable trends on the way to determining the NCAA champion. Things were particularly painful for USC, a team that finished as the runner-up in the Pac-12 but saw arch rival UCLA - not followed by USC - get announced as an at-large team.
"His recovery he's made so far has been even more than what doctors and trainers had thought it would be", Self said.
