Clemson Projected As A 3 Seed In March”

"When the committee started our meeting on Tuesday, I think there was a general agreement on who the top three teams were, but by late Saturday night that group had grown to four", committee chairman Bruce Rasmussen said in a statement.

The Sooners are losers of three in a row, but have notable wins over Oregon, Wichita State, Texas Tech and Kansas.

The Cavaliers were the No. 1 overall seed and assigned to the South Regional in preliminary bracketing released Sunday by the tournament selection committee. However, this year the Team Sheets changed, and though teams are, obviously, still rewarded for wins like Virginia Tech's on Saturday, the weight of wins and losses is different.

Selection Sunday for the 2018 NCAA Tournament is 4 weeks away.

Auburn (22-3, 10-2 SEC), which is leading the Southeastern Conference by two games with six games to play, was placed as a 2-seed in the Midwest Region with Xavier as the No. 1 seed. The top 16 bracket reveal showed the selection committee is stressing the number of quality wins above everything else, including the actual "quality" of so-called quality wins, with the new Quadrant system. They were the East's No. 1 in 2014, the Midwest's No. 1 in 2016.

The overall No. 1 seed as chosen by the committee is Virginia, with Villanova, Xavier and Purdue, a team that just lost to the Spartans, being named as the other No. 1 seeds. Meanwhile, Virginia Tech jumped to 56th from 67th, upgrading its chances of earning a tournament bid. Had we won, yeah we would have been No. 1. The Wildcats earned the No. 4 seed in the West, but delving deeper into the resumes, Rhode Island looks better almost across the board.
