For just the third time in school history and the first time since 2002, the Cowboys (30-3) will play in The Big Dance. The Cowboys' program has never received a higher seed, and the 12-seed also corresponds with the highest seed a Southland Conference club has received in the previous 40 years (SFA in 2014 and 2015).

Gonzaga (25-7), ranked 17th in the AP poll, took second place in the West Coast Conference and lost the WCC Tournament Championship game to St Mary's, 69-60. It will be the Bulldogs' 26th time participating in the tournament.
