Clemson Projected As A 3 Seed In March

Arizona Athletics

When the Division I men's basketball committee released a snapshot of its top 16 teams Sunday, Virginia held down the top spot overall, with Villanova, Purdue and Xavier flagged as the other projected regional No. 1 seeds.

This obviously doesn't mean that Auburn will still be a 2 seed in a month, but when the selection committee unveiled a top 16 a year ago, 15 of 16 teams were the same when the real bracket came out.

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).

Villanova was No. 1 in the East, Xavier tops in the Midwest Region and Purdue No. 1 in the West Region. The Wildcats earned the No. 4 seed in the West, but delving deeper into the resumes, Rhode Island looks better almost across the board.

The committee is no longer using RPI top 50, top 100, top 200, and 201 and above as five dividing categories. But keep in mind that Oklahoma and Arizona rank even lower than the Rams' in those metrics in addition to worse standings in resume-ranking metrics like RPI, yet those Power-5 schools snuck in as the last two No. 4 seeds.

South: 1. Virginia, 2.

March 11th the official NCAA Tournament Bracket will be announced. Tennessee now sits at No. 13 in the RPI and has a 4-4 record against teams inside the top 25 of the RPI and doesn't have a single "bad loss" on their record.

They also have four Quadrant 2 wins and only two losses outside Quadrant 1. Duke, 3. Texas Tech, 4. Kansas, 3. North Carolina, 4.
