The Arizona Wildcats did not make it into the 2012 NCAA Tournament, but they were far from the only team that was snubbed. In taking a closer look at the final brackets, one omission seems to stand out.

SB Nation basketball editor Mike Rutherford offers five points of analysis regarding the bracket announcements. One of his points is that the Seton Hall Pirates were snubbed mightily by the selection committee.

It was a disappointing Sunday for a number of teams hoping to hear their name called during the selection special, but it was especially brutal for a Seton Hall team that most "Bracketologists" had penciled into the field of 68.

The Pirates’ lone non-conference loss was to Northwestern, and their computer numbers appear to be at-large worthy enough. They had a chance to help themselves by earning a couple of quality wins in the Big East Tournament, but they fell to eventual champion Louisville in the second round.
