The Demon Deacons are listed as the one-point favorite against the Kansas State Wildcats with a 152-point total in their NCAA Tournament First Four matchup at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com for Tuesday night. That means that unlike Wake Forest, which runs it fast and isn't great on D, KSU presents a challenge to the Bearcats akin to playing against themselves.

How Mount St. Mary's got here: This year we learned that it's possible to start a season 1-11 and be good enough to make the NCAA Tournament.

Danny Manning has done a tremendous job so far in Winston-Salem, engineering a turnaround from a 2-16 season previous year.

Exceeding expectations all season, the Demon Deacons are back in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2010 as a giant mystery. "We have one of the most efficient offenses in the country, but we've got to become a better rebounding team and a better defensive team in terms of staying in front of the ball".

With the brackets set, the action begins Tuesday and Wednesday with opening-round games that will include matchups between the last at-large teams invited into the draw. "We finished the season with four starters averaging double figures and how we closed out our conference tourney is a testament to the character and focus of this team".

No. 11 seed K-State will play No. 6 seed Cincinnati in the first round on Friday in Sacramento. The Shockers are the Missouri Valley Tournament champs and have won 30 games.

"When you have success as a player, some of those guys don't have the patience to be a coach", Weber said. That's always the goal. They're making their second NCAA appearance since then. It has a 28-22 all-time record in the tournament, including a trip to the Final Four in 1962.

This is the first time K-State has been selected for the tournament since 2014. "(They are) a very talented team". And we'll find out if there are any surprises among those top 16 that are different than as projected by espnW's Charlie Crème, whose final Bracketology on Sunday had Ohio State as the final host and Auburn as the last team in. The victor of that contest will play the victor of UCLA (29-4) vs. Kent State (22-13). "I remember going in there and ducking some live chickens, also some not-so-live ones out of a KFC bucket or whatever".

So did the Wildcats show anything Tuesday to make us believe that an 11-6 upset is possible? "There's a lot of things you can look at as good, besides having to play a game right away".
