Gilas #23for23 members Remy Martin and Dwight Ramos will have another chance of obtaining college basketball experience as their respective teams both qualified to the NCAA men's basketball tournament, which will begin later this week.

Remy Martin, who was recently named as one of the PAC-12 Sixth Men of the Year, will be beginning the tournament as his Arizona State Sun Devils will face Syracuse University in a First Four contest in Dayton, Ohio on Thursday (PHL time).

The team, coached by former Duke legend Bobby Hurley, was in a very festive mood as their team was announced as part of Selection Sunday.

Several Sun Devils even dove to a nearby pool and swam in jubilation.

Meanwhile, Dwight Ramos' team, the 15th-seeded Cal State Fullerton Titans, who qualified for the tournament for the first time since 2008, will meet second-seeded Purdue on Friday in Detroit's Little Caesar Arena.

The 6'0" Martin averaged 9.8 points and 2.9 rebounds for the Sun Devils while the 6'5 Ramos normed 2.2 points, 0.9 rebounds, and 0.5 assists this season.
