Virginia men's hoops selected as number one overall seed in NCAA Tournament

The Musketeers could be poised to break through this season.

For the third time in the last five years, Virginia will be a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament.

The Musketeers (28-5) are No. 1 in the West Region and will face the First Four victor between North Carolina Central and Texas Southern on Thursday in Nashville.

"There's no team in this tournament that is more prepared than Auburn as far as everything we've gone through", Pearl said. "Experience helps, but being ready to play that night is the most important thing". Chealey, a senior, had 32 in the CAA Championship Game.

The Bonnies will face off against UCLA Tuesday night, with the victor taking the No. 11 seed in the East Region and battling No. 6 seed Florida on Thursday.

Cincinnati is a No. 2 seed in the South regional and will play Georgia State on Friday. A No. 3 seed is mostly fair, but they're in the same quadrant as No. 2 seed Duke, which is probably good enough to be a No. 1 seed. Florida State could just as easily take that matchup with its elite size and athleticism.

Sumner went on to the National Basketball Association and athletic guard Trevon Blueitt considered leaving before deciding to stay in Cincinnati for another season.

Azubuike has been a dominant force in the paint this season, averaging 13.7 points and 7.1 boards while giving the Jayhawks their only consistent low-post presence.

Behind Blueitt, Xavier reached the program's highest ranking at No. 3 in the AP Top 25 and set a school record for conference victories with 15 on the way to the Big East regular-season title.

"They always wanted me to coach at Marshall", said D'Antoni, now 70. "The volume wasn't up high enough to hear".

That proved to the final bit of goal-mouth action as the Gunners end their three-game losing run in the league. Arsenal then followed that up with a convincing 3-0 win over Watford .

Outlook against UNC: While obviously the toughest challenge for the Tar Heels on the way to the Final Four, Xavier has been billed by most of the sport's top analysts as the weakest No. 1 seed.

They have landed a number nine spot taking on Creighton University in Charlotte on Friday.

It also features arguably the nation's most electric player in Trae Young, who led Oklahoma in as a No. 10 seed despite going 2-8 down the stretch. North Carolina shot 40.8% from the field and 40.0% (10-25) from beyond the arc in the loss.

NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 10: Mamadi Diakite #25 of the Virginia Cavaliers reacts in the first half against the North Carolina Tar Heels during the championship game of the 2018 ACC Men's Basketball Tournament at Barclays Center on March 10, 2018 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

"It could weigh into our decision" on how much Azubuike plays against Penn, Self said, "but we wouldn't put him out there before he's ready anyway".

Texas A&M-much like its First Round opponent Providence-relies on a wide variety of contributors to get the job done. In 1997, the No. 12 Cougars upset No. 5 Maryland in the opening round. The selection committee must not have been too impressed with their late run however, as Kentucky was awarded the No. 5 seed in the South Region. Other teams who will play in Wichita are Seton Hall, North Carolina State, San Diego State, Houston, Michigan and Montana.

Auburn will be the No. 4 seed in the Midwest.

"If Michigan State and Duke both play well, they would be two of the heaviest favorites to win the national championship".

Expect to see a few Zags fans in Boise. The Fighting Irish finished the year 20-14, and nearly managed to make the tournament, even with its best player, Bonzie Colson, missing 15 games with a broken foot.
