Nothing wrong with 10

A gymnastics score of 10 is perfect. A preseason Top 10 football ranking will rouse an entire college campus. A 10-0 run in basketball is a momentum-swinging surge.

But when it comes to the NCAA Tournament, 10 isn't exactly the number you want staring at you from the television screen the Sunday before the Big Dance.

Oklahoma State's 10-seed wasn't well received by all of the program's supporters. Cowboys fans would've loved that seed to be somewhere in the single digits.

But 10 isn't the end of the world; those actually on the team seem pleased to be playing March basketball again after a one-year hiatus.

"Not a good day, a great day (for the program)," OSU coach Brad Underwood told the media Sunday.

No. 10 is just fine in this case.
