  • 2 seed in current NCAA Tournament field projection

The early look at the top four teams in each region was shown live on CBS Sports.

The committee rated Michigan State a No. 3 seed in its midseason bracket reveal on Sunday afternoon.

"Auburn can not go to Atlanta because we can not have the top No. 1 seed play the top No. 2 seed", NCAA men's committee chair and Creighton athletic director Bruce D. Rasmussen said on CBS.

South: 1. Virginia, 2.

Four months before Selection Sunday, Virginia is college basketball's top team in the eyes of the NCAA tournament selection committee.

The Rams are 1-3 against Quadrant 1 opponents but the quadrant's arbitrary cutoff has done them an injustice.

As things stand, the No. 1 seeds would be Virginia, Villanova, Xavier and Purdue. If those seeds held, Xavier would get preference for the Midwest Region in Omaha because it is the higher seed. Clemson was a 4 seed in 1987 and 1997.

Michigan State - which now holds an overall record of 24-3 and has gone 12-2 in Big Ten play - was not ranked a No. 1 or No. 2 seed. That is the fifth-worst ranking among RPI top 50 teams. The committee has Duke No. 7, which would give it a 2 seed, and North Carolina No. 12, which would be a three seed. Kansas (19-6, 8-4 Big 12) lost to Baylor this week and has dropped two of three to fall a game behind Texas Tech in its bid to win a 14th straight Big 12 championship.

Michigan State, the team likely to take over the No. 1 spot in the AP poll on Monday, was the No. 11 overall seed (No. 3 seed in South Region). Arizona (20-6, 10-3) has losses to Washington and UCLA the past two weeks.
