St. Bonaventure was a question mark coming into selection Sunday. Many thought they had earned a trip to the NCAA tournament, but multiple media reports suggested they could be snubbed. Snubbed they were not. The Bonnies were one of the last four teams in, joining Syracuse, UCLA, and Oklahoma. They will play UCLA in the First Four. Both teams are 11 seeds. The game will be Tuesday night at 9:30 in Dayton, Ohio. The winner of that game will play #6 Florida in Dallas on Thursday.

St. Bonaventure was the 2nd to last team in the tournament. Syracuse was the last selection. Cuse is also a #11 seed in the First Four. They play Bobby Hurley and Arizona State with the winner playing #6 TCU.

As for UB, they had an auto-bid after winning the MAC Championship over Toledo. They drew a #13 seed and a matchup with #4 Arizona in Boise, Idaho. That game will be on Thursday.
