Ohio Valley champ gets 16 seed

(KFVS) -

The Austin Peay Governors are headed to the NCAA tournament.

That's the good news.

The bad news: the Govs get Kansas in the opening round.

The Ohio Valley Conference tournament champion earned a 16 seed in the big dance.

Kansas is not only a number one seed, but the top seed in the tournament.

Austin Peay won the OVC tournament in dramatic fashion; the Govs won the title as an eight seed.

Belmont, who won the OVC regular season, will face Georgia in the NIT Tournament.
