Oklahoma State (19-14) and USC (23-11) also ended up on the outside, and like Louisville, have been linked to the FBI's corruption probe. And guess what? All three are part of the federal investigation into college basketball corruption. The Trojans were one of the first four teams out. Fullerton, making the tournament for the first time 2008, received the 15th seed in the 16-team East Region, and will face second-seeded Purdue Friday in Detroit.

It remains unclear why exactly USC was left out in favor of other teams, but this is definitely one possibility.

The Frogs are in the same half of the bracket as Oklahoma, a 10-seed. "We know they stumbled down the stretch, and that certainly affected their seeding, but they had enough on their resume to get in". Arizona State defeated Southern California 80-78. However, they finished out the season on an 8-10 slide before losing to Colorado in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament. The Gaels picked up their only noteworthy win at Gonzaga, while the Blue Raiders missed opportunities against Auburn, USC and Miami. But the Bobby Hurley's crew, who were 20-11 overall and had an RPI of 66, beat out USC, who played Arizona in the Pac-12 tournament final was had an RPI of 33, and Saint Mary's, who went 28-5 and held an RPI of 40. At 17-16, SC never had a shot to make it.

It seems that when in doubt, the NCAA Tournament selection committee tried to avoid those schools.
