Sports: Cause for debate: Who got screwed by Selection Sunday?

  • The mis-seeded The whole killer Big East thing came at the cost of at least two killer No. 2 seeds, Duke and Memphis. Both won their conference finals and both are noted programs with long histories. But they only got a 2 seed. WTF, selection committee?
  • The slighted St. Mary’s, San Diego State and Penn State did pretty good this season yet didn’t make the dance. St. Mary’s only lost six games but were done in by a harsh loss to Gonzaga in their conference final. Now they get the chance for NIT, uh, glory.
  • The surprisesSyracuse got a fairly high 3 seed after proving its awesomeness in the Big East tourney, and Arizona made its 25th straight tourney despite having a pretty mediocre record. Essentially, Arizona best not run into St. Mary’s in a dark alleyway. source
