The Wildcats have had their best season in recent memory — if not ever — finishing second in the Big Ten regular-season standings before falling to Penn State in the quarterfinals. Boo Buie has been a star for their offense, averaging 17.2 points per game.
Boise State lost to Utah State in the Mountain West Tournament, but that shouldn’t overshadow a successful campaign for the Broncos. After losing in the first round of last year’s NCAA Tournament, the Broncos will lean on one of the nation’s best defenses in a search for their first NCAA Tournament win.
