Charles Barkley, Dick Vitale rip into Oklahoma's selection for NCAA tournament

Posted March 13, 2018

Syracuse (22-8, 10-6 Atlantic Coast) is in the NCAA Tournament as a No. 8 seed and will face No. 9 seed Oklahoma State (20-10, 11-7 Big-12) in Starkville, Mississippi, on Saturday afternoon.

Oklahoma's willingness to play tough teams and their good finish in the Big 12 were the main reasons why the Sooners made the tourney.

There was a common thread between some of the biggest snubs in this year's NCAA Tournament, one that seems to make a lot of sense.

Each had a different critique of Oklahoma, with Barkley noting the way the Sooners stumbled badly down the stretch and Vitale wondering how they could have been chosen over in-state rival Oklahoma State.

He told the New York Post : "It looked like it was completely submerged". "You could clearly see they were searching", she said. Witnesses say the Eurocopter AS350, a model tourism companies tend to use, filled with water quickly after it went down.

This is the fifth straight year that the Friars have reached the NCAA Tournament.

The Friars are 1-4 in NCAA Tournament games in the Ed Cooley era. Obviously, great respect for Rhode Island and the year they've had.

An upset loss to BYU in the WCC tournament was the nail in the coffin for Saint Mary's, but that does mean they should be punished for a late-season loss while Oklahoma get rewarded for starting the season off strong?

SU did just that, including knocking off then-No.

Ahead of the conference, he tweeted, "We have not come from all the continents to deliver speeches that will soon be forgotten". The joint goal is to have 1 TW of solar energy by 2020 for which "we need United States dollars 1,000 billion", he said.

Unlike their male counterparts who finished the regular season losing eight out of 10 games, the OU women won seven of their last 10 regular-season contests and finished tied for third in the Big 12 standings with an 11-7 league record.

The schools implicated in the FBI investigation included Arizona, Auburn, Louisville, Miami, Oklahoma State, South Carolina, and Southern California. But they also played tournament teams in Wichita State, Arkansas, Texas A&M and the aforementioned Florida State. Clearly they didn't think enough of the Cowboys. "They can give me all the talk they want about what they did early, 14-2, but there is no way in the world - if Oklahoma is in, Oklahoma State had to be in the tournament".

Disappointed? You bet I am.
