From the Standard-Examiner ... Weber State to face Xavier in NCAA Tournament

Wildcats coach Randy Rahe in the Examiner: “We will be ready to compete, there is no question. I want them to enjoy the experience, but when it's time to lock in and get ready to go in our preparation, they'll get locked in and ready to go.”

From the Salt Lake Tribune ... Kragthorpe: Weber State excels in post-Damian Lillard era

From the Cincinnati Enquirer ... Doc: It's Xavier's time to shine

The Enquirer's Paul Daughtry wrote: "This is definitely Xavier’s time. Time for more validation and continued steps along the trail up Mt. Elite. Xavier has been on the Final 4 fringes for a decade, with groups of players either not as talented, as together or as deep as this group."

Also from the Cincinnati Enquirer ... Xavier makes history with No. 2 seed

Xavier guard Myles Davis to the Enquirer on what he knew about Weber State early on: "Mack told us that they like to shoot jump shots. That’s the most that we know. I know that their main player averages about 18 points a game. I heard all their losses were…they didn’t lose by a lot. They’re a very good team, one that we’re not going to overlook."

North Dakota accepted an invitation to play in the Tournament
