Selection Sunday: Oklahoma to play Thursday against Rhode Island; Oklahoma State gets home NIT game; Get your NCAA tournament bracket here

OSU is a two seed in the 32-team field, but the Cowboys didn't make the NCAA Tournament in Boynton's first season.

Senior guards Tra Holder (18.4 points), Evans II (16.6) and Kodi Justice (12.6) led the Sun Devils in scoring.

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.

In the Big 12, Oklahoma remains one of the more interesting teams on the bubble. I saw them play a little bit early and their coach has done a fantastic job as Coach of the Year. But of all the bubble teams, we had just about the strongest non-conference strength of schedule.

He said Turkey sent troops to conflict zones when requested, but did not receive support in return. "Where are you?", RT quoted Erdogan as saying on Sunday.

"We understand that there probably were some things that we could have controlled better over the course of the season", Boynton said. "Those guys deserve let's pray that we do".

Louisville, USC and Oklahoma State were among the biggest snubs from the dance. The NCAA's "corporate champions" (because calling them what they are, corporate sponsors, would only make the argument for paying players easier) aren't creating ads dripping with Americana to run between stretches of a bunch of Australians running roughshod over a good, hearty, land-grant university from the Eastern time zone.

Don't forget before the NCAA Tournament begins, you can also play Bracket Games through CBS Sports by creating a pool with your office, family or friends, or filling out your bracket online. They're probably NIT-bound.
