ESPN's experts have boiled down the tournament to 7 teams fighting for 3 spots with Arizona among those 7. If Mississippi State manages to win tomorrow then it will be 7 teams fighting for 2 spots so let's all hope that Tennessee can take care of business in the SEC final. Arizona will have to fight for the final spots with Creighton, St. Mary's, San Diego State, Maryland, Penn State, and Auburn. So how do the tournament résumés of these teams compare?
