NORMAN — Oklahoma received the No. 5 seed in the NCAA tournament's West region. It will face No. 12-seed North Dakota State on Thursday. San Diego State is the No. 4 seed and will face No. 13-seed New Mexico State.

The winners meet Saturday with the winner of that game advancing to the Sweet 16 and into regional semifinal play at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. The Aztecs eliminated OU in the second round of last season's NCAA tournament.
