UVA projected as No. 1 overall NCAA seed

Previously, Clemson has been a No. 4 seed on two occasions.

Much like the College Football Playoff's in-season rankings, the preliminary seeds are created to heighten fan interest and prepare the selection committee for March's task of bracketing the 68-team field, set to be revealed March 11.

There is still one month remaining in the season and some time for these seeds to switch up before Selection Sunday. "We initially felt Villanova was the overall top seed, but we flipped that Thursday morning after the Wildcats lost to St. John's at home and Virginia won at Florida State".

Committee chair Bruce Rasmussen, speaking on the CBS reveal show, suggested Michigan State could move up the seed lines in the next month, particularly if it can play a top-ranked opponent in the Big Ten tournament. Villanova, Xavier and Purdue earned the other No. 1 seeds. The committee has Duke No. 7, which would give it a 2 seed, and North Carolina No. 12, which would be a three seed.

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

Michigan State is ranked as the No. 11 overall seed, behind Clemson (No. 9) and Texas Tech (No. 10). They were the East's No. 1 in 2014, the Midwest's No. 1 in 2016. Kansas, North Carolina and Arizona filled out the top four in the West Region in Los Angeles.
