Virginia No. 1 in preliminary NCAA Tournament rankings

Kansas was made a No. 2 seed in the West and Oklahoma a #4 seed in the Midwest.

With a month remaining until Selection Sunday, the NCAA selection committee released its preliminary bracket projection of the tournament's top 16 seeds on Sunday.

"The committee was pretty strong in their consensus of the No. 1 seeds", Rasmussen said. Despite Michigan State's two top-five wins, it has only a 3-2 record in its "Quadrant 1" games, against top-30 teams at home, top-50 teams at neutral sites and top-75 teams on the road. "Because they're older, they're very experienced, they're deep, they defend, they score in different ways".

South: 1. Virginia, 2. Duke, 3. Texas Tech, 4.

They are coming off an 80-64 loss to Baylor, but will have multiple chances to rebound in Big 12 play. "The one major change (from last year) is we do a better job of recognizing wins away from home".
