With a month remaining until Selection Sunday, the NCAA selection committee released its preliminary bracket projection of the tournament's top 16 seeds on Sunday. Duke, Texas Tech and Ohio State joined Villanova in the East, to be played in Boston. Tennessee now sits at No. 13 in the RPI and has a 4-4 record against teams inside the top 25 of the RPI and doesn't have a single "bad loss" on their record.

The No. 2 Cavaliers (23-2, 12-1 ACC) travel to No. 25 Miami (18-6, 7-5 ACC) on Tuesday to face the Hurricanes at 9 p.m.at the Watsco Center. Previously, Clemson has been a No. 4 seed on two occasions.

West: 1. Purdue, 2.

Purdue, despite losing both of its games last week, is No. 1 in the West Region with Kansas, North Carolina and Arizona in Los Angeles.

After one year, the company said it will "work with customers to reach a fair solution if the product is defective in any way". Thank you for being a loyal customer and we look forward to continuing to inspire and enable you to Be an Outsider.

The committee followed its seeding guidelines, which made for some juggling. Rasmussen said it was a useful exercise that helps get the three first-year members up to speed, but he cautioned that the roughly 1,300 games left this season can shake seedings up in dramatic fashion. "What I can say, without any doubt, is there are several very good teams, which could lead to a wide-open tournament".

The official brackets will be revealed a month from today. "It wouldn't be surprising to see different results this time". If they Spartans win out to finish their regular season and then go on to win the Big Ten Tournament, they would improve their case to be a top-2 seed or better in the 2018 NCAA Tournament.
