Things tip-off on Saturday at 3:05 p.m. ET, when No. 3 seed Texas A&M takes on No. 14 Wichita State. The Aggies enter the tournament riding a three-game win streak, which includes an SEC Tournament championship game win over Kentucky on Sunday, March 10.
The winner of Texas A&M-Wichita State will next take on the winner of Saturday's second Round of 64 matchup between No. 6 seed Nebraska and No. 11 Chattanooga. The Cornhuskers are led by one of the top players in the Big Ten, Jordan Hooper, who averaged team highs in points (17.7) and rebounds (8.8) this season.

Should Baylor advance, the Bears will next face the winner of the No. 8-vs.-No. 9 game in their region, featuring the Florida State Seminoles and Princeton Tigers.
Princeton enters this matchup after finishing 22-6 overall and 13-1 in Ivy League play in 2013. Niveen Rasheed led the Tigers in points (17.1), rebounds (7.7) and assists (3.1) during the regular season.
