Texas (26-8, 12-6 Big 12) will bring a four-game winning streak into the NCAA Tournament, and interim head coach Rodney Terry has done a great job of keeping the team on track after the removal of Chris Beard early in the season. The Longhorns are filled with seniors with Marcus Carr leading the way with 15.9 points, 4.1 assists and 1.8 steals per game.
Colgate (26-8, 17-1 Patriot) won nine consecutive games and rolled through the Patriot League without many issues to qualify for the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time in a row. The Raiders have five players averaging double-digit points, and Tucker Richardson is the team leader in points (13.9), assists (5.8) and steals (2.1) per game.
