NCAA Bracket Preview: Complete Texas-San Antonio Tournament Primer

Texas-San Antonio earned its way into the 2011 NCAA Tournament by winning three games in the Southland Conference Tournament by a combined 13 points. That's admirable fortitude from the Roadrunners, but it will translate to an early exit from March Madness.

Record: 19-13, 9-7 in the Southland

RPI: 194

Key wins: The Roadrunners have beaten zero teams ranked in Ken Pomeroy's top 150. Their wins over 171st-ranked San Jose (72-63 at home on Nov. 30) and 169th-ranked Sam Houston State (79-70 in the Southland tournament on March 10) are as close as it gets.

Key loss: UTSA lost to lowly Samford at home on Dec. 20 by a 74-73 score.

Players to watch: Senior Devin Gibson, sophomore Melvin Johnson, and freshman Jeromie Hill form the Roadrunners' ruling triumvirate. They combine to average over 45 points per game; the rest of the Roadrunners' roster averages less than 36 points. Gibson, in particular, is excellent, rarely leaving the floor and putting together a 17-5-5 line with nearly three steals per contest.
