"You never know because you have so many teams and you can only take 64," said NC State head coach Elliott Avent, who will be sending his team back to the tournament for the second straight year and for the fifth time in his seven year tenure. "I haven't even looked to see which teams were left out, but I'm sure there are some teams sitting there right now wondering what else do they have to do.
