Michigan State - which now holds an overall record of 24-3 and has gone 12-2 in Big Ten play - was not ranked a No. 1 or No. 2 seed.

The Midwest Region in Omaha had Auburn, Clemson and Oklahoma.

The other three are Virginia (No. 1) on a neutral, Nevada (No. 15) on the road, and Alabama (No. 33) on the road. Cincinnati, 3. Tennessee, 4.

Villanova was selected as the second No. 1 seed (East Region).

Midwest: 1. Xavier, 2. Kansas, 3. North Carolina, 4.
