Who was screwed on selection Sunday

The bubble burst on Sunday for several heartbroken teams.

Richmond’s win over Davidson in the Atlantic 10 Championship stole a bid from Dayton on Sunday. They were the first team left out of the field of 68 teams.


Betting on March Madness 2022?


Rutgers, Notre Dame, Wyoming and Indiana have earned the last four spots in the 68-team field and are in the top four at Dayton. Wyoming plays Indiana on Tuesday while Rutgers takes on Notre Dame on Wednesday.

Here are the teams that weren’t so lucky:

Dayton (23-9)

Conference: Atlantic 10

coaching: Anthony Grant

Wins over Kansas, Miami and Virginia Tech weren’t enough for a Flyers team that has shown they can hold their own on defense and finished 13th in points allowed (60.9). They have a freshman at the helm as the 6-foot-10 Daron Holmes II was a two-way inside force with strong shot-blocking abilities (2.3 bpg).

Oklahoma (18-15)

Conference: big 12

coaching: Porter Moser

The Sooners, led by east Washington’s Tanner Groves, mostly struggled against top teams and a strong Big 12 tournament wasn’t enough to overcome that.

SMU (23-8)

Conference: American

coaching: Tim Jankovich

Kendric Davis, AAC Player of the Year, is a force in the backcourt. He shoots at a high level (19.4 ppg), is a quality distributor (4.5 apg), and is lightning fast from the free throw line (86.1 percent). The 5-foot-11 guard led SMU to three wins in four tries against the league’s other top teams, Memphis and Houston, averaging 22 points in those encounters.

Texas A&M (23-12)

coaching: Buzz Williams

The Aggies were 15-2 on Jan. 15 before an eight-game losing streak heralded another disappointing year for Williams at College Station. However, they responded by winning six of seven to wrap up the regular season behind senior guard Quenton Jackson’s game (14.8 ppg) before putting on a strong performance in the SEC tournament to get into the field.
