That is the fifth-worst ranking among RPI top 50 teams.

That was the message sent by this year's selection committee, which on Sunday revealed the top four seeds in each region, as things stand today, during an afternoon special on CBS Sports.

Arizona would receive a No. 4 seed in the West Region if Selection Sunday were now, according to the NCAA Tournament selection committee's announcement Sunday. Instead, the Spartans were named as one of the four No. 3 seeds.

Virginia, Villanova and Purdue may have all lost last week, but that has not affected their standing in the NCAA tournament committee's eyes. The No. 2 seeds were Duke, Auburn, Kansas and Cincinnati.

Michigan State is ranked as the No. 11 overall seed, behind Clemson (No. 9) and Texas Tech (No. 10).




Villanova was selected as the second No. 1 seed (East Region).

The South Region, to be played in Atlanta, also included Cincinnati, Michigan State and Tennessee.

With Selection Sunday exactly a month away, Duke may not have as much work to do as many expected to play its way into a top seed.

Virginia may not be the No. 1 team in the nation when the Associated Press poll is released on Monday, but the Cavaliers are No. 1 where it counts. The other three No. 3 seeds along with Michigan State are Clemson, Texas Tech and North Carolina.

After that, the Jayhawks will return to Allen Fieldhouse for arguably their two biggest games of the season - Saturday vs.
