  • Kansas is No. 1 in Midwest Region featuring all-time greats

Which mid-major or lower-seeded teams have the best chance to make noise in the Big Dance?

Less than 24 hours after claiming the ACC tournament championship for the second time in five seasons, the Virginia men's basketball team celebrated yet again, this time back home in Charlottesville, after securing the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament.

They revealed the field first, bracket second, which may have sounded good to some network executive who pretends to care about college basketball for a few weeks every year but in reality was sort of like watching someone pour a glass of milk on a plate of flawless nachos and expecting you to be hungry anyway.

"I told our players that everyone can play if they're in there", Bennett said in a teleconference Sunday after the pairings were released.

Virginia carries a load of experience in seniors Devon Hall and Isaiah Wilkins, while sophomores Kyle Guy, Ty Jerome and Mamadi Diakite have stepped up in their second collegiate seasons.

"Obviously, my friends look into all that stuff, so they text me, 'Oh, you might be playing". "It's a concern. But with what this team has gone through this year, who cares?" coach Tom Izzo said.

SNUBS: Baylor, Louisville, Marquette, Middle Tennessee, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Penn State, Saint Mary's, USC. Michigan State will go into Friday's game against Bucknell not having played a game in two weeks because of the Big Ten's early conference tournament. "To be in the top four seeds in this bracket is a tremendous statement for the regular-season champions". 8 of the Aggies' 14 appearances, and 8 of their 11 NCAA wins, have come since 2006 ... Now that you're fully equipped with the March Madness knowledge you need this season, go fill out a bracket and enjoy the tournament! You're going to build the drama. "I think it's only fitting that we're playing in Pittsburgh".

With a well-rounded offense and a high level of confidence from their 10-game winning streak, the Ramblers should pose a challenge to Miami in the round of 64. "We know they stumbled down the stretch and that certainly affected their seeding, but they had enough on their resume to get in". They just haven't let more teams in.

Clemson's most successful NCAA run came in 1980, the first year Clemson was selected.

Defending national runner-up Gonzaga is a very tough No. 4 seed as they'll have to get by No. 13 seed UNC Greensboro in the first game. And who would say no to the potential of Xavier matching up with Ohio State in the Sweet 16 in an all-Ohio battle?

Rather, it was the Virginia Cavaliers, and the thought here is they will parlay their head-turning 31-2 record into a national championship.

In went Arizona State, Syracuse, and Oklahoma.

The Bruins are second in the Pac-12 in scoring at 81.9 points per game and lead the conference in rebounding (38.8 per game, including 28.5 defensive rebounds per game) and 3-point field goal percentage (38.3). Keita Bates-Diop is a future pro. Here is what he wrote about the Jayhawks: "Kansas features a four-guard lineup that makes 10 three-pointers a game, and transfer Malik Newman emerged as an explosive scorer in the Big 12 tournament, but the Jayhawks could be susceptible to opponents with size - especially if center Udoka Azubuike isn't recovered from a sprained knee".
