Where: They will open play against Cal Poly in the first round in Dayton. Winner gets Wichita State.
Why: Texas Southern finished with a 12-6 record in the SWAC, tied for second place in the conference with Alabama State. The Tigers won the league's auto-bid by knocking off Prairie View A&M in the postseason tournament title game.
Ceiling: The Tigers most likely won't be around very long in the NCAAs - despite winning their last nine games of the season, they struggled against elite competition most of the season. If they're to have a chance at winning a game, senior center Aaric Murray will need to dominate inside.
