Who Are The No. 1 Seeds For the 2018 NCAA Tournament?

Syracuse guard Tyus Battle and the Orange will find out their NCAA Tournament fate on Sunday night

The NCAA snub marks the first time since 1976 that UofL was eligible for postseason play and won at least 20 games and did not get an invitation to the Big Dance.

The schools MI beat in the semifinals and finals of last week's Big Ten Tournament are headed to Detroit for the start of this week's NCAA Tournament.

Mike Krzyzewski and Duke are in the NCAA Tournament for the 23rd year in a row, two more than Izzo and Michigan State.

Not that Kentucky is incapable of fighting its way out of Idaho and advancing on to Atlanta, home of the South Region semifinals and finals.

The Sun Devils began the season going a flawless 12-0 through the non-conference slate, a stretch that set a program record, and included victories over NCAA Tournament No. 1 seeds Xavier (on a neutral court) and Kansas (on the road at Allen Fieldhouse). Before that, Self went to the NCAA twice with Tulsa and three times with IL.

Mull noted only Cleveland State (No. 14 in 1986), Chattanooga (No. 14 seed in 1997) and Florida Gulf Coast (No. 15 seed in 2013) have advanced to the Sweet 16 from the group of Nos. They could have easily made MSU or MI a two-seed in the East, the other No.3 in the Midwest and Purdue a third-seed in the West, and shipped the Boilermakers to Wichita.

But if Division I's average adjusted tempo is a little more than 68 possessions per game, per KenPom.com, there is a decided outlier: With 59.2 possessions per game, Virginia is the slowest team in college basketball. The last time a league team received a No. 16 seed was 1989, when Princeton lost to Georgetown by a point - as close as any bottom seed has come to beating a top seed in 128 such matchups.

And, the Wildcats are going to need all of the help they can get if they are going to escape the first two rounds in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Big teams have posed major problems for the Gators all season. Ray Hagley, the team physician who was on the plane with his wife. "I had to ask my guys, 'How many of you know what state Boise is in?'" coach John Calipari said, as part of an entertaining riff during an ESPN interview about the long trip his team faces.

"When we were going through that (13-game) winning streak, everybody was asking, 'Do you think you're in?' and my response the whole time was we have to keep winning games. So yes, it means a great deal to me from a historical perspective". Louisville, with an RPI of 39, became the highest-rated team in that index to miss the tournament, backing the concept that the selection committee would look more heavily at other factors. Arizona State and Syracuse in are the two odd inclusions.

FIRST ROUND WINNERS: Virginia, Kansas State, Kentucky, Arizona, Miami, Tennessee, Texas, Cincinnati.

First-year Ohio State men's basketball coach Chris Holtmann shouts instructions to the Buckeyes during a December game against Appalachian State.

Ken Pom Says: North Carolina is the highest-rated team in the region (7), followed by Gonzaga (8), MI (10) and Xavier (14).

- WILDCATS IN THE SOUTH: Four teams of Wildcats are in the South Regional. UNC had won three-straight games before being defeated by the Cavaliers.
