2 seed in current NCAA Tournament field projection

2 seed in current NCAA Tournament field projection

With Duke, Clemson and North Carolina also included, the ACC comprised 25 percent of the top 16. The No. 3 seeds are Clemson, Texas Tech, Michigan State and North Carolina. And with the season winding down, the NCAA selection committee gave us a taste of how the top 16 seeds would look if selection Sunday was held today. 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.

Clemson University men's basketball was projected as a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament as the Division I men's basketball committee revealed on CBS a sneak peek at its top 16 teams as of mid-February.

However, they did not significantly damage Purdue's NCAA Tournament resume in the eyes of the selection committee. The other three top seeds if the season ended now would be Villanova, Xavier and Purdue.

Kentucky (17-8, 6-6 SEC) has been projected as a No. 7 seed in the South Region and would open the tourney against 10th-seeded Providence (16-9, 7-5 Big East). Auburn was named the top No. 2 seed, which makes it No. 5 overall.




The committee is no longer using RPI top 50, top 100, top 200, and 201 and above as five dividing categories. Duke, 3. Texas Tech, 4.

Purdue earned a No. 1 seed despite losing both games this week, though both were to ranked teams - No. 14 Ohio State and No. 4 Michigan State.

"The committee was pretty strong in its consensus of the No. 1 teams, but there was a lot of dialogue all the way through the first quadrant because the teams are so close", Rasmussen said.
