First Four to round of 32

The Denver Post - - MARCHING ALONG -

South­ern Cal­i­for­nia’s vic­tory over SMU means that a First Four win­ner will ad­vance to the round of 32 for the sev­enth con­sec­u­tive year. Each year since the NCAA Tour­na­ment ex­panded to 68 teams in 2011 and in­cluded the First Four round, at least one of the First Four vic­tors has won at least one more game as well. VCU ad­vanced from the First Four to the Fi­nal Four in 2011. The 2013 La Salle team and the 2014 Ten­nessee squad reached the Sweet 16. Los­ing in the round of 32 were First Four par­tic­i­pants South Florida in 2012, Day­ton in 2015 and Wi­chita State in 2016. The As­so­ci­ated Press
