NCAA Men's Basketball Selection Show Details

Guard Kyle Guy and Virginia earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Division I men's basketball tournament

The Midwest Region is another story. UVA leads the nation in scoring defense at 53.4 points per game and have the best turnover margin in the ACC. Virginia is the top seed in the South region and will open play on Friday against the University of Maryland- Baltimore County. But here's the thing: Any resume conversation about Oklahoma (5-11 road/neutral) had to start with the selection committee's Top-16 seeds reveal on February 11.

If the Nebraska basketball team doesn't get what it wants on Selection Sunday, the 2017-18 season is still going to be considered a success.

The Virginia Tech men's basketball team is heading back to the NCAA Tournament - and heading to the Steel City to meet Alabama. They build momentum in either their conference tournament or the final part of the regular season and keep on rolling right across the bracket. Yet they have not made the Final Four since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, and their last national semifinal came in 1984, when they were knocked off by a Houston team led by the star center Hakeem Olajuwon. Michigan, which won the Big Ten Tournament for the second straight year, is among those teams to already earn its bid.

Either they can't make free throws, turn the ball over too much or allow teams to light them up from long-range. But those two teams ranked in the AP Top 25 appear to be safely in the tourney no matter what happens. Virginia and Villanova are tight for the overall No. 1 - I'd give the edge to the Cavaliers based on more high-quality road victories, five against the top 50 teams - and Kansas, with 20 Quadrant 1 and 2 victories, will be the third top seed.

The first four games in Dayton, Ohio, will be LIU-Brooklyn against Radford and St. Bonaventure against UCLA on Tuesday night, and North Carolina Central against Texas Southern and Arizona State against Syracuse on Wednesday night.

Four ACC teams - Florida State, Syracuse, Louisville and aforementioned Notre Dame - most likely will be among the 8-10 teams vying for the final four at-large bids.

Virginia spent an entire season exceeding all expectations and making a dominant run through the Atlantic Coast Conference. Interestingly enough, Marcus Foster, the Blue Jays' best offensive player, played his freshman and sophomore year at Kansas State, where he was a teammate with UVa's Nigel Johnson. TBS and CBS officials have said that will happen in the first 10 minutes of the show. They have accumulated a 16-15 all-time record in the tournament, including 4-5 under Hamilton.

Challenged about Oklahoma's seed by TBS's Charles Barkley, Rasmussen said, "The games in November count the same as the games in February".

Cincinnati (3-4) also has a stifling defense and won the American Athletic Conference title.
