Downside to being in such a great conference like the big east is the teams beat each other up all year and prevent higher seeding. As a result 4 of our 6 are locked into the dreaded 8/9/10 seeds and will have a rough matchup second round.

Oklahoma lost 11 of there last 15. Bounced in the Opening Round of their Tournament and lost 2x to their in state rival who did not make the tourney. The NCAA is losing all credibility.

Okla got in because of their stellar football season.

Does the committee watch any games during the season? Are they even college basketball fans? Maybe they are just tied to analytics.

I think they got in due to their hot start, but mainly because of Trae Young. He's a heckuva player and, being a freshman, is a good story for the NCAA Tournament. It's somewhat of a "show."

Exactly. This was a bone tossed to CBS/TBS. A chance for increased ratings.

I wonder if he gets his reach around before or after the selection.
