We're in! NC State is headed to Dayton to play Xavier

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Shew! We had to sweat it for a couple of regions, but the Wolfpack did in fact sneak into the NCAA tournament. NC State will get Xavier in the First Four round, with the winner advancing to play fifth-seeded Saint Louis in the Midwest Region. This means that State was one of the last four teams to get in. That run to the semis of the ACC tourney was juuuuust enough, and looks like it might have ultimately cost SMU a spot. (Sorry, Larry!)

Wichita State is the top seed in the Midwest, unsurprisingly, with Michigan the two, Duke the three, and Louisville the four. I feel like the Pack actually has a decent chance of winning a couple games, but a potential matchup with Louisville would be frightening. But I'm getting way ahead of myself here. We don't have to watch the NIT selection show, you guys!
