Oklahoma basketball: NCAA selection committee has Sooners as No. 4 seed

Virginia was given the top No. 1 overall seed. "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". The other three No. 3 seeds along with Michigan State are Clemson, Texas Tech and North Carolina. That is the fifth-worst ranking among RPI top 50 teams.

Duke is now the No. 7 team in the nation in the eyes of the NCAA men's basketball selection committee, which revealed its top 16 teams up to this point in the season Sunday afternoon on CBS. The actual tournament seeding will be held March 11.

Committee chair Bruce Rasmussen, speaking on the CBS reveal show, suggested Michigan State could move up the seed lines in the next month, particularly if it can play a top-ranked opponent in the Big Ten tournament.

So while Virginia Tech's away win vs. Virginia was an RPI top-50 win previous year, it is now a Quadrant 1 win.
