TBS' NCAA selection show may not have been a hit with viewers Sunday, to say the very least, but one aspect of the telecast that went over well was Charles Barkley's questioning of Oklahoma's inclusion in the tournament.

After starting the year 3-1, OU hovered just above or below.500 since November, and though it surged in February, there were back-to-back losses to end the season. The class of 2018, which includes Kyron Cartwright, Rodney Bullock, and Jalen Lindsey, have never missed an NCAA Tournament. "We could feel that today and that was pretty special".

"There is no way in the world that Oklahoma State, if Oklahoma is in, Oklahoma State had to be in the tournament". "We also thought their 6-4 record down the stretch as well as their finish inside the conference were some of the things that differentiated them from some of those other teams that didn't get into the field".

A barrage of 3-pointers gave Davidson a shot to make the NCAA Tournament. "We do want to reward teams that schedule up".

March Madness is officially underway as the field of 68 teams have been selected over the weekend to compete in the NCAA Tournament.

First-year coach Mike Boynton wasn't the flashy name many fans wanted when he was hired last spring, but he's been winning people over one game at a time with his hard-working, no-excuses style. The berth mark OU's 21st all-time appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

The OU-DePaul survivor will face the victor between No. 4 Texas A&M and No. 13 Drake in a Sunday second-round contest.

Coale likes the idea of playing in the state of Texas and said "when you lose as many games as we did, you can't be picky on who you're matched up against". The teams play contrasting styles. Every time we play it is a triple-digit scoring on both sides. He wasn't as emotional as his senior leaders, Mitchell Solomon and Jeffrey Carroll, but he pondered why his team won't play in the NCAA Tournament.

The NCAA operates the NIT, and each higher-seeded team hosts the first three rounds in its home arena. The Spartans are deep and balanced, led by do-everything forward Miles Bridges, who passed up on being a high first-round pick a year ago to return for his sophomore season.
