UConn Gets No. 1 Seed in West

So UConn gets the No. 1 seed in the West Region, edging out Memphis. I thought the opposite might be the case, but then I've never considered myself much of a Bracketologist.

UConn will play No. 16 seed Tennessee-Chattanooga in its first-round game on Thursday in Philadelphia. The only other time the Huskies have pleyd the Mocs was on March 16, 1995, in another NCAA tournament first-round game. UConn won that game easily, 100-71. Going scoreless with one rebound in one minute of play in that one for UT-Chattanooga? T.O. himself, Terrell Owens.

The Mocs are led by Stephen McDowell, a 5-11 grad student who averages 18.6 points per game. Nicchaeus Dokes, a 6-7, 239-pound senior forward, averages 13.9 points and 8.7 rebounds.

More to come ...
