The Zags first round opponent will either be the No. 16 Prairie View A&M Panthers out of the Southwestern Athletic Conference, or the No. 16 Fairleigh Dickinson Knights out of the Northeast Conference.
The two teams are two of the three lowest KenPom ranked teams in the NCAA Tournament this season, with the lowest being the No. 303 ranked North Carolina Central Eagles out of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.
The second game will be the play-in between the No. 11 Temple Owls and the No. 11 Belmont Bruins. Temple went 23-9 on the season and lost to Wichita State in the first round of the American Conference Tournament, barely squeaking in the NCAA Tournament. You might remember Belmont as the No. 15-seeded team in 2008 that nearly upset No. 2 Duke.
All games can be streamed online via March Madness Live.
