St. Bonaventure has made the NCAA Tournament for the seventh time in program history and twice under Schmidt. St. Bonaventure won Atlantic 10 regular season and back are back in the field for the first time since 2012 and seventh all time.

St. Bonaventure's at-large hopes were boosted by victories over Syracuse and Maryland.

BOTTOM LINE: UCLA makes its 49th tournament appearance but its debut in the First Four. The Bruins have two non conference losses, both to tournament teams - Cincinnati and MI. "And now we're in the NCAA Tournament, and that's a very good accomplishment".

Although this was the first time Wilkes ever watched the selection show, it was the last time Thomas Welsh got to take in selection Sunday as a Bruin. UCLA has a little more experience, and a little more talent.

The Saint Louis native is questionable for the Bonnies' NCAA Tournament game with UCLA tonight inside UD Arena, coach Mark Schmidt acknowledged Monday, but more signs seem to point to him playing.

The tired Bruins didn't practice Saturday after returning from Las Vegas and didn't take the court Sunday, either.
