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


Ultimately, the committee did a fairly good selecting their top 16 teams with a few odd missteps. The No. 3 seeds would be Clemson, Texas Tech, Michigan State and UNC. The Cavaliers, Tar Heels and Tigers are the only other teams in the Blue Devils' general geographic region in the committee's top 16, and the results of the next month will decide which two teams get to stay close to home and play the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament in Charlotte.

On Sunday, the NCAA men's basketball selection committee revealed the top 16 teams in the field as of this moment in the season. Last season, 15 of the preliminary top 16 remained in that group for the bracket a month later. Villanova (East), Xavier (Midwest) and Michigan State (Midwest) joined Virginia as top seeds.

The Rams are 1-3 against Quadrant 1 opponents but the quadrant's arbitrary cutoff has done them an injustice.

Purdue, despite losing both of its games last week, is No. 1 in the West Region with Kansas, North Carolina and Arizona in Los Angeles. The Wildcats earned the No. 4 seed in the West, but delving deeper into the resumes, Rhode Island looks better almost across the board.




Kentucky (17-8, 6-6 SEC) has been projected as a No. 7 seed in the South Region and would open the tourney against 10th-seeded Providence (16-9, 7-5 Big East).

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

The Sooners will be back in action Tuesday night when they face Texas Tech at 6 p.m. CT.

The committee appears to be putting lots of faith in the Jayhawks down the stretch.
