Louisville, Notre Dame Out, Syracuse In NCAA Tournament

Jim Boeheim speaks at a press conference.

Syracuse is in the 2018 NCAA Tournament, while both Notre Dame and Louisville are out.

The Syracuse Orange, despite finishing with an 8-10 mark in the ACC this year, will play in the 2018 NCAA Tournament. The Orange qualified for the event over fellow ACC bubble teams Louisville and Notre Dame.

Syracuse finished with a 20-13 record and an 8-10 mark in the ACC. Louisville also finished with a 20-13 mark, while Notre Dame had a 20-14 mark.

Syracuse had an RPI of 39. Louisville's was 36, while Notre Dame's was 68.

As you'd imagine, college basketball fans went crazy when SU was selected.

TBS revealed that Syracuse was actually the last team in the entire field. Baylor was the first team out, while Louisville wasn't even listed in the first four teams out.

The NCAA Tournament tips off Tuesday. Syracuse will be playing in the "First Four" - meaning they'll play either Tuesday or Wednesday.
