About an hour before the NCAA Tournament Selection Show kicked off, Oklahoma play-by-play announcer Toby Rowland intoned the crowd at Lloyd Noble Center to stay positive.

The URI Rams will be a 7 seed in the Midwest Region of the NCAA Tournament and face 10th seeded Oklahoma in the first round on Thursday in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

"Do you believe out there?"

"There is no way in the world that Oklahoma State, if Oklahoma is in, Oklahoma State had to be in the tournament".

Oklahoma finished the season 18-13, losing to Oklahoma State in the opening round of the Big 12 Tournament last week in Kansas City. That gave them an advantage over numerous other teams on the bubble. The Rams won the league's regular season title, but fell to Davidson by a point in the league's tournament title game.

Rhode Island lost the A-10 Championship game to third-seeded Davidson 58-57 on Sunday afternoon, giving the Wildcats the A-10's automatic bid. Its RPI dropped to No. 48, but after playing one of the toughest schedules, the Sooners were rewarded with their fifth NCAA tournament appearance in coach Lon Kruger's 7 seasons.

That wasn't enough to keep the Sooners - and star point guard Trae Young, the nation's leader in both scoring and assists - out of the tournament.
