MORNING BRIEFING: Wake heads men's field

Defending champion Wake Forest is the top seed in the 48-team NCAA Division I Men's Tournament field announced on Monday. The Demon Deacons, whose 25-game unbeaten streak was stopped by Virginia in Saturday's ACC semifinals, were joined by two other teams from last year's Men's College Cup, Massachusetts and Ohio State, which nabbed at-large bids ahead of several teams disappointed to be left out.

Among those who were overlooked was Campbell (14-6-0), whose 12-game winning streak was snapped in Saturday's Atlantic Sun final.

Five Big East teams got it -- South Florida, St. John's, Notre Dame, Louisville and Connecticut -- but Syracuse (8-6-3), DePaul (9-7-4) and Providence (9-7-3) had arguments.

Kentucky (12-4-5) extended its school-record unbeaten streak to 10 games with its 1-1 tie with Tulsa in the Conference USA final -- but the Wildcats fell in the shootout and did not get an at-large bid.

The ACC led all conferences with six teams in the tournament, including four seeded teams -- No. 1 Wake Forest, No. 2 Maryland, No. 10 Virginia and No. 13 North Carolina.

Three teams will be making their first appearance in the tournament: Big West champion UC Irvine, Atlantic-10 champ Dayton and Missouri Valley runner-up Drake.

Play begins with first-round play Friday and Saturday. The 16 seeded teams move into action in the second round next Tuesday.
