UC and Xavier make the bracket on Selection Sunday
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- The bracket is done, and both the University of Cincinnati and Xavier University made the field of 68 in 2014's March Madness, and neither team has an easy road to the Final Four.
UC has to overcome the stress of distance as the champions of the American Athletic Conference get shipped to Spokane, Washington as a five seed in the east region. Their opening round game comes against Ivy League Champion Harvard.
Xavier will have to play its way in with a "play-in" game on Tuesday night in Dayton against North Carolina State which just reached the semi-finals of the ACC Tournament and boast that conference's Player of the Year, Ty Warren.
Xavier's game starts at 9:10 p.m. Tuesday, and if they win they're off to Orlando to play St. Louis on Thursday. UC will also be playing on Thursday.
