North Carolina, Kansas (#1 overall), Virginia, and Oregon will be heading the four regions of the 2016 NCAA Tournament bracket. They and 64 other teams found out their seeding in the big dance on Selection Sunday night, while many others were left wondering what they could have done to qualify.
Take a look at the committee's selection, revealed to a national audience at 5:30 PM EST on CBS.
|East Region||South Region||Midwest Region||West Region|
|3||West Virginia||Miami||Utah||Texas A&M|
|6||Notre Dame||Arizona||Seton Hall||Texas|
|8||USC||Colorado||Texas Tech||Saint Joseph's|
|11||Michigan/Tulsa||Vanderbilt/Wichita State||Gonzaga||Northern Iowa|
|12||Chattanooga||South Dakota State||Little Rock||Yale|
|13||Stony Brook||Hawai'i||Iona||UNC Wilmington|
|14||Stephen F. Austin||Buffalo||Fresno State||Green Bay|
|15||Weber State||UNC Asheville||Middle Tennessee||Cal St. Bakersfield|
|16||FGCU/Farleigh Dickinson||Austin Peay||Hampton||Holy Cross/Southern|
So now we know the ins and outs, the ones and twos, and now all we're left to wonder is which game will be our first upset. Not as many mid-majors got in as expected or hoped for, and teams like Syracuse and Vanderbilt snuck in despite major concerns they would not make the cut.
Despite winning their conference tournament Sunday after already having a top-seed-caliber resume, Michigan State was put at the two seed in the Midwest Region, while Oregon made its first-ever appearance to the big dance as a number one seed. Villanova's loss to Seton Hall did indeed drop them to a two as well, leaving some breathing room to more safely select Virginia.
