Where: They will open play against UCLA in San Diego on Friday.
Why: Tulsa finished with a 13-3 record in Conference USA, tied for first place with three other teams – Southern Miss, Louisiana Tech and Middle Tennessee. The Golden Hurricane won the league’s postseason tournament, therefore earning its auto-bid.
Ceiling: Tulsa, like many other mid-majors in the NCAA Tournament, is playing its best basketball of the year – the Golden Hurricane has won 11 straight games. Still, when Tulsa had opportunities during the regular season to knock off other NCAA teams, it failed to do so. They lost to Wichita State, Creighton and Oklahoma. They also lost to Maryland, TCU and Green Bay. As hot as they are, don’t expect them to advance.
