The committee is no longer using RPI top 50, top 100, top 200, and 201 and above as five dividing categories.

UA's 81-67 win over USC clearly helped the Wildcats stay among the top 16 seeds.

"Virginia's had an unbelievable year ... and they're an incredible 10-1 (away from home)", committee chairman and Creighton athletic director Bruce Rasmussen said on CBS.

The Tigers, now 20-4 overall and 9-3 in second-place in the ACC, were projected as a No. 3 seed in the Midwest Region of the bracket. The No. 3 seeds would be Clemson, Texas Tech, Michigan State and UNC.

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. Kansas, 3. North Carolina, 4.
