Oklahoma women make NCAA Tournament field

"This is going to be the first time in the history of Providence College that a recruiting class goes to four consecutive [NCAA] tournaments, and I can't be more proud of this group for doing so, which is really, really hard to do", said PC head coach Ed Cooley in his post-game press conference following the win over Creighton in the Big East Tournament.

The Cowboys finished the season with a 19-14 record and an 8-10 record in conference play. 17 Duke at home, before falling in the first round of the ACC Tournament to Virginia Tech. And Oklahoma had six wins against top 35 RPI [teams]. Obviously, great respect for Rhode Island and the year they've had. "We know that they stumbled down the stretch, and that certainly affected their seeding, but they had enough on their resume to get in". Rhode Island boasts a 25-7 record and won the Atlantic 10's regular-season crown.

He added that the Sooners were "playing in an extremely hard league", and "while there's no question they stumbled down the stretch. they had enough on their résumé to be in". But they also played tournament teams in Wichita State, Arkansas, Texas A&M and the aforementioned Florida State. Oklahoma State beats West Virginia at West Virginia.

If Nebraska wins, Nebraska will play the victor of top-seeded Baylor against eighth-seeded Wagner in the second round. The Cornhuskers are now 22-10 overall and went 13-5 in Big Ten play during the regular season.

Disappointed? You bet I am. "Oklahoma got into the field based on what Rutgers turned into the final month, not on what the Sooners achieved themselves".

Fellow ESPN analyst Jay Bilas chimed in on First Take, Monday morning.
