Defending champs top overall seed

first_imgStill, it’s hardly a guarantee the Gators will be in Atlanta for the Final Four on March 31. Last season, they won it all as a No. 3 seed, and not a single top-seeded school made it to the Final Four for the first time since 1980. Falling to a No. 2 was last year’s national runner-up, UCLA, which looked headed for a No. 1 seed until losing its last two games, including the quarterfinals of the Pacific-10 Conference tournament. But the real surprise came in the meager number of at-large bids handed out to mid-major teams. Only six of 34 spots went to the little guys, down from eight last year and 12 in 2004. It means fewer opportunities for a repeat of last year, when 11th-seeded George Mason – the commuter college in Virginia – struck a blow for the underdog in a stirring trip to the Final Four. “Last year, the impression was that the tournament committee had gone overboard in selecting mid-majors,” selection committee chairman Gary Walters said. “But when we start the process, we throw conference affiliation out the window … and it shakes out where it shakes out.” So much for the little guy. Big boys like defending champion Florida and No. 1-ranked Ohio State are among the top-seeded favorites, and the darling mid-major teams get surprisingly few chances to turn the NCAA tournament into a free-for-all for underdogs. March Madness officially began Sunday when the pairings were announced, kicking off office and online pools and triggering debate about seedings, who went where and who didn’t make it at all. Florida will try to become the first team since 1992 to repeat as champion – and the first ever with the same five starters – and the Gators will do it with their first overall top seed in the tournament, leapfrogging Ohio State courtesy of three consecutive routs in the Southeastern Conference tournament. North Carolina and Kansas were the other No. 1 seeds, rounding out a group that all won both their regular-season and conference tournament championships. “It’s a compliment to our season as a body of work,” said Florida coach Billy Donovan, whose team rebounded to finish 29-5 after losing three games at the end of the regular season. center_img While their sheer quantity wasn’t impressive, some mid-majors thrived in other ways. Southern Illinois earned a fourth seed and Butler a fifth. Meanwhile, Big South champion Winthrop and America East champion Albany were seeded unusually high at 11th and 13th, respectively. Parity reigned this year with a record 104 teams winning 20 games or more, raising the possibility of a mid-major revolution when the brackets came out. It wasn’t to be. Instead, the final five bubble spots went to Arkansas, Illinois, Stanford, Purdue and Texas Tech – all from power conferences. The Atlantic Coast Conference placed the most teams in the tournament with seven, while the Pac-10, Big East, and Big Ten had six each, the SEC five and the Big 12 four. No mid-major had more than two. Old Dominion of the Colonial Athletic Conference did get an at-large bid, but Missouri State (0-5 against the top two teams in its league), Air Force (season-ending four-game losing streak) and, maybe most stunningly, Drexel (finished behind Old Dominion and Hofstra in the CAA), were left out. “It’s very disappointing, not just that you didn’t get in, but when you look at some of the teams that did,” said coach Bruiser Flint of Drexel, which went 23-8 with 13 road wins. Little guys weren’t the only ones disappointed. Kansas State looked safe in Bob Huggins’ first year as coach but didn’t make it. Neither did Florida State. And the biggest surprise of all might have been to bypass Syracuse, 22-10 and winner of seven of its past 10. Other notables from Selection Sunday included: Lute Olson of Arizona making his 23rd consecutive appearance in the tournament, tying the record held by Dean Smith at North Carolina. Louisville getting a nice break, earning only a sixth seed, but having to travel just an hour down Interstate 64 to play in Lexington’s Rupp Arena. A very angry Niagara team, relegated to Tuesday night’s play-in game against Florida A&M despite a 22-11 record that included an 11-game winning streak. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Ranieri lined up as Roma sack Di Francesco after UCL flop

first_img0Shares0000Eusebio Di Francesco took over as Roma coach in June 2017 © AFP/File / PATRICIA DE MELO MOREIRAMILAN, Italy, Mar 7 – Eusebio Di Francesco was sacked as Roma coach after the team crashed out of the Champions League, the Italian club confirmed on Thursday, with former boss Claudio Ranieri tipped to replace him.Roma had taken a 2-1 advantage to Porto for the second leg of their last-16 tie on Wednesday but fell 4-3 on aggregate after a controversial penalty awarded following a VAR review deep into extra time. “AS Roma can confirm head coach Eusebio Di Francesco has left the club with immediate effect,” the team said in a statement.“The club would like to thank Eusebio for his work during his time at AS Roma and wish him success in the future.”An urgent meeting had been called on Thursday afternoon in Rome between the club’s top officials to discuss Di Francesco’s future.Club president Jim Pallotta later said: “On behalf of myself and everyone at AS Roma, I’d like to thank Eusebio for his work and his commitment.“Since returning to the club, Eusebio has always acted professionally and put the club’s needs ahead of his own. We all wish him well for the future.”Former Sassuolo boss Di Francesco took over in June 2017.A former Roma midfielder, he had helped the team to their last Serie A title as a player in 2001.The 49-year-old led Roma to the Champions League semi-finals last season for the first time since 1984, following an epic 3-0 comeback against Barcelona in the quarter-finals.“Di Francesco will remain the coach who took Roma to the Champions League semi-finals after who knows how many years and he deserves credit for that,” said captain Daniele De Rossi.“I know this isn’t our best season and the job of a coach will always be tied to results.”The club finished third last season but this campaign has been marked by struggles with Di Francesco apologising to fans but refusing to resign after a humiliating 7-1 defeat to Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals last month.Roma are now fifth in Serie A, three points off the Champions League berths for next season, after falling 3-0 last weekend to bitter city rivals Lazio.– Ranieri ‘ready’ –Claudio Ranieri was axed as Fulham manager with the club 10 points adrift of safety in the Premier League © AFP/File / Ian KINGTONRanieri, who memorably guided Leicester City to the 2016 Premier League title before being sacked the following season, coached Roma from September 2009 to February 2011.The 67-year-old Italian’s brief spell as manager of Premier League strugglers Fulham ended last month after only four months in charge.“Ranieri is ready,” wrote Gazzetta Dello Sport, adding that the former Roma boss was expected to travel to the Italian capital from London by Friday at the latest.Other reported contenders are former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte and his Stamford Bridge successor Maurizio Sarri.Ranieri has had a long coaching career in Italy with clubs including Juventus, Inter Milan and Napoli. He coached French club Nantes before taking over at Fulham in November 2018, only to be sacked on February 28.During his time in charge of Roma he oversaw 84 matches — winning 47, with 16 draws and 21 defeats.Di Francesco has coached Roma for 87 games with 46 victories, 18 draws and 23 defeats.The Champions League exit however was the final straw for American businessman Pallotta who had raged at VAR after the defeat.The tie hinged on a decision by Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir to point to the spot late in extra time upon reviewing an incident in which Alessandro Florenzi hauled back Porto forward Fernando.Alex Telles converted the spot-kick, and Roma were then denied a penalty at the other end following a review, after Patrik Schick tumbled to the ground.“Last year we asked for VAR in the Champions League because we got screwed in the semi-final and tonight, they’ve got VAR and we still get robbed,” said Pallotta on Twitter.“Patrik Schick was clearly clipped in the box, VAR shows it, and nothing is given. I’m tired of this crap. I give up.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
