SALT LAKE CITY — The NCAA men's basketball tournament is back in Utah and teams from across the country descended in Salt Lake City this week for the first two rounds of the tournament.

Those in town are: Gonzaga, Kansas, Auburn, Syracuse, Baylor, New Mexico State, Northeastern and Fairleigh Dickinson.

Each team practiced for about 40 minutes Wednesday.

Vivint Arena has hosted the tournament three times since 2013. Gonzaga has been a No. 1 seed in all three of those tournaments.
