Davidson earns 13th seed, faces Louisville

The Davidson Wildcats have been tabbed the West Region's 13th seed and will face fourth-seeded Louisville Cardinals in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Thursday in Portland, Ore.

It's the first appearance for the Wildcats since they made their magical run to the regional finals in 2008 as the No. 10 seed behind future NBA lottery pick Stephen Curry. They beat Gonzaga, Georgetown and Wisconsin before losing to Kansas.

Davidson earned its 11th tournament bid after a thrilling double-overtime win over Western Carolina to capture the 2012 Southern Conference tournament title.

The winner of the Davidson-Louisville game faces the winner of fifth-seeded New Mexico (27-6) and 12th-seeded Long Beach State (25-8) on Saturday.

Louisville wins this game by 16 points plus. Davidson can shoot the 3 but they haven't seen a perimeter defense like the Cardinals in 4 years. I like how all of the "experts" are picking this Cinderella upset however. The slipper doesn't fit....not this time.
