1 Virginia (28-6, ACC champion) vs.

16 Coastal Carolina (21-12, Big South champion)

Virginia must prove it deserves a No. 1 seed, even after beating Duke in the ACC tournament Sunday. Winning big over the Chanticleers would be a good start.

8 Memphis (23-9, at-large) vs.

9 George Washington (24-8, at-large)

Memphis has been inconsistent this season and now faces a George Washington team that has won five of its last seven games.

5 Cincinnati (27-6, at-large) vs.

12 Harvard (26-4, Ivy League champion)

Cincinnati's high-scoring Justin Jackson complements Kilpatrick on a team that also plays tough defense. Harvard is making its third straight trip to the tournament.

4 Michigan State (26-8, Big Ten champion) vs.

13 Delaware (25-9, CAA champion)

Gary Harris stars at both ends of the court for Michigan State. Delaware made the tournament with a come-from-behind win in its conference tournament.

6 North Carolina (23-9, at-large) vs.

11 Providence (23-11, Big East champion)

The unpredictable Tar Heels have impressive wins — and surprising losses — on their record. The Friars' conference title was just plain surprising.

3 Iowa State (26-7, Big 12 champion) vs.

14 N. Carolina Central (28-5, MEAC champion)

The Cyclones defeated Kansas, Kansas State and Baylor to win the Big 12 tournament. Jeremy Ingram's 20.6 points lead the Eagles.

7 Connecticut (26-8, at-large) vs.

10 St. Joseph's (24-9, Atlantic 10 champion)
