NCAA Tournament: Saint Mary's Faces Defending Champs Villanova First

The 2019 NCAA Tournament field was announced Sunday, with Duke, Virginia, North Carolina and Gonzaga earning the four No. 1 seeds.

Saint Mary's College of Moraga is seeded 11th in the South Region and opens against sixth seeded Villanova at Hartford, Connecticut.

The tournament will have a definite Northern California flavor as Mississippi State, Liberty, Virginia Tech, St. Louis, Wisconsin, Oregon, Kansas State and UC Irvine will all play their first-round games in San Jose.
