    Virginia (23-2), Villanova (23-2), Xavier (23-3) and Purdue (23-4) would get No. 1 seeds if the NCAA men's basketball tournament started Sunday, according to a bracket preview released by the selection committee.


    Virginia would be the No. 1 overall seed, despite its overtime loss to Virginia Tech on Saturday.


    When the committee started our meeting on Tuesday, I think there was a general agreement on who the top three teams were, but by late Saturday night that group had grown to four," committee chairman Bruce Rasmussen said in a statement. "We initially felt Villanova was the overall top seed, but we flipped that Thursday morning after the Wildcats lost to St. John's at home and Virginia won at Florida State.


    "Despite UVA's loss Saturday, we felt that based on their 13 wins in the first two quadrants, they deserved to remain on top. Villanova bounced back with a good win Saturday, so we kept them second. Purdue had two tough losses to quality teams, while Xavier picked up two good road wins to solidify the fourth No. 1 seed and ultimately leap Purdue on the seed list."

    If there is a top team to bet against early on, it should be Purdue. Likely the first #1 seed to go out.

    Almost all of their games are close and they have a horrible history in the tournament. They have taken teams alot better than this and literally never get past the sweet 16 ( except once in 30 years I beleive)

    It is one of those rare college teams though that is senior dominated. Think they may start 4 seniors and a sophomore.

    That's debateable.. Don't ever remember a Purdue team last year or in recent years that have been ranked this high , or can shoot the ball like this one.. as far as our friends comment that Purdue would be first 1 seed to go. These 4 current #1 seeds don't have a track record of making runs in the tournament , outside of Nova 2 years ago.. VA would be my choice based on how they keep teams in the game with a struggling offense.

    Too lazy to look it up but I believe that to be false. Their last couple have been close. Before that they were SMASHING teams.
