The Elite Eight teams and their ranking in the final regular-season AP Top 25:
15. Kansas State
18. San Diego State
25. Florida Atlantic
I used to hate San Diego State so much. It was the team Jim Brandenburg left my beloved Wyoming for in ‘87, when the Cowboys were on the cusp of greatness. Tecs didn’t do shit in Brandy’s 5 years, but this group under Brian Dutcher is special. Tecs are finally in the #EliteEight !
Brilliant idea having the only remaining No. 1 seeds playing at the same time on different channels, NCAA. #MarchMadness
