No. 1 seed Kansas, No. 2 Duke on collision course in Midwest

Reed leads the team with 1.7 steals per game, which ranks second in the ACC. No. 5 seed Ohio State and No. 12 seed South Dakota State might be one of the best first-round matchups as it features a pair of All-American candidates in Buckeyes forward Keita Bates-Diop and Jackrabbits big man Mike Daum.

Watching No. 3 seed MI will be fascinating since they had the long layoff after the Big Ten Tournament victory.

The regular season was fun, but at the end of the day, Nebraska was not worthy of partaking in this year's tournament.

Saint Mary's lacked high-quality victories, but it's tough on a West Coast Conference team to get those opportunities. Miller and Tony Bennett also used to coach together with Team USA. Now, it's time for the Wildcats to continue living up to the hype after earning a No. 1 seed in the East Region with a matchup against the victor of the LIU Brooklyn and Radford game.

Throw in Tennessee (25-8), the SEC tournament runner-up, and the South is loaded with roadblocks in Virginia's path to the Final Four.

The Friars will take on 7-seed Texas A&M on Friday in Charlotte. Over that time, the Cavaliers claimed three ACC regular-season titles and an ACC conference tournament crown. The Southeastern Conference, which has made a concerted effort to transfer its success in football to the hardcourt, got 8 of its 14 teams into the field.

For third-round co-leader Shubhankar Sharma, it was meltdown time for the second successive Sunday. It'll just make me stronger. "I'll try to get a good night of sleep tonight and go from there".

Xavier, Villanova, Kansas and Virginia all snagged the highly-coveted number one seeds. Villanova, under Coach Jay Wright, is displaying consistent excellence.

Skinny: North Carolina lost some critical pieces from last season's team that won the national championship, but the Tar Heels have enough back to make a run.

The fabled last four in were Arizona State, St. Bonaventure, Syracuse (a team that was not thought even to be on the bubble) and U.C.L.A.

MSU captured its third outright Big Ten championship and eighth league title under Izzo with a 16-2 record in league play. De Sousa emerged as a replacement for 7-footer Udoka Azubuike, who missed the Big 12 tournament with a knee injury.

It continues to be hard for mid-major conferences to place their teams. Villanova was a No. 1 previous year and has consistently been a high seed under coach Jay Wright. Who's going to win it all? "So let's go", said Kiran Williams. DeVoe leads Clemson in 3-pointers with 75 this season - just five away from tying for 10th all-time for a single season in Clemson history. "The games in November and December count the same as the games in February and March, and Oklahoma had six wins against top-35 RPI". The South Region will play the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight at Philips Arena in Atlanta.
