They are expected to sign the veteran when free agency opens on Wednesday, per an National Football League source. It is not certain yet what sort of contract that Keenum, who made $2 million last season, will get.

BONNIES BELONG: St. Bonaventure is driven by the guard play of seniors Jaylen Adams (19.8 points per game) and Matt Mobley (18.5). Nate Jones averages 11 minutes and 2.2 points per game. He also added 5.4 assists per game as well.

Each of the lowest four seeded at-large teams are required to play in the First Four as are the four lowest automatic qualifiers.

UCLA must take the longest route possible for coach Steve Alford to finally go past the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament after reaching that point in three of his first four years as Bruins coach. The Bruins first beat Stanford in the 4/5 game.

That source said on Saturday that Stockard might well have played against the Wildcats had Bona felt it absolutely needed a win to secure its place in the NCAA Tournament. The Bonnies are led by a pair of high-scoring guards, while UCLA relies on junior guard Aaron Holliday for a big chunk of the offense. This will be the senior center's third NCAA Tournament appearance. He got the Blackbirds to the NCAA Tournament in his first season and will be playing in an arena that was a regular A-10 stop during his nine seasons with UMass. This year they have plenty of upsets again, like one region where you need to pick the 11, 12, AND 13 seeds, and another region with a 4-seed in the Final Four. The college basketball odds for the game have the Bruins favored to pick up the win. UCLA has a little more experience, and a little more talent. "But I think we feel really confident that we're able to play with anyone in the country, and that is really about preparation and process and taking things one game at a time". While Jaylen Adams is good, Aaron Holiday is another level good, and will be tough for the Bonnies to defend in this game.

Positive hiring climate expected for Windsor area
Similarly, employers in the Services sector report a decline of three percentage points compared to the same period in 2017. Those are the findings from a survey conducted by workforce analysts at ManpowerGroup .

BOTTOM LINE: UCLA makes its 49th tournament appearance but its debut in the First Four.
