Below is viewing information and TV times for Tuesday night’s game, along with Las Vegas odds and a pick for the game. We’ll also introduce you to the teams, which could very well become the next Cinderella.

<em>Gary Parrish’s expert picks for each First Four game</em>

About Mount St. Mary’s: Mount St. Mary’s is in the dance for the fifth time in school history. An NEC team has never won a tournament game that wasn’t a 16-vs.-16 scenario. So that fact doesn’t bode well. The Mount won a game as a 16-seed in 2008 over No. 16 Coppin State. Mount St. Mary’s won the NEC tourney at home as the top seed, beating No. 4 St. Francis (Pennsylvania) 71-61. While some mid-major leagues have oft-criticized ways of putting on their league tournaments, the NEC does it right. The higher seed in that tournament always has the home-court advantage, and,  yet again, the top seed wins out, giving the NEC its best chance at pulling off a March Madness upset. 

About New Orleans: New Orleans hasn’t been to the Big Dance since 1996, and it took every second of overtime against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to get them back here. It’s the fifth-ever NCAA Tournament appearance for the Privateers. 

Odds (via Vegas Insiders)

New Orleans -1.5

Pick: Mount St. Mary’s +1.5

New Orleans is an amazing story. The Privateers snapped a two-decade tourney drought to make it back to the big stage, but I think Mount St. Mary’s -- led by sophomore star Elijah Long -- will come out victorious. So give me Mount St. Mary’s straight up against the spread.
