Notre Dame takes on Hampton, Baylor plays Wagner and Saint Mary's faces Southeastern Louisiana in the first round.

Notre Dame (20-14, 8-10 ACC), who finished as one of the Selection Committee's first four out, had an outside shot to make the tournament thanks to the return of star forward Bonzie Colson and guard Matt Farrell, who both missed significant time this season. The Owls held off Tulane, 82-77 for a win in the AAC First Round.

"We're not going to get everybody, but nobody's going to be more sincere and honest and to the point as the Temple staff will be".

Rose leads the Owls in scoring on the year as well with 15.1 PPG and 4.3 RPG.
