Jake Cohen, a junior forward, will lead his Davidson College squad into the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament in its upset bid against Louisville.

Davidson (25-7), which is seeded 14th in the West Region, takes on the Big East Conference tournament champion Cardinals (26-9), the fourth seed, on Thursday in Portland, Ore.

Cohen, who is 6-foot-10 and comes from Berwyn, Pa., averages 14 points, 6 rebounds and 1.7 blocks for the North Carolina school. He powered Davidson to the title in the Southern Conference tournament with 17 points, 7 rebounds and 7 blocked shots in a 93-91 double overtime victory over Western Carolina in the championship game.

On Friday, also in the West Region, third-year coach Josh Pastner will guide the University of Memphis in its first-round match against St. Louis University in Columbus, Ohio. Memphis (26-8), the Conference USA champion, is seeded eighth, while St. Louis (25-7) is the ninth seed.

Pastner has a 75-28 overall record at the helm of the Tigers.
