1 Florida (32-2, Southeastern champion)

16 Play-in winner (See matchup below)

Can you say "Gator bait"? Whoever wins the play-in game will have effectively played its way out of the tournament by Thursday.

8 Colorado (23-11, at-large)

9 Pittsburgh (25-9, at-large)

Colorado has struggled since Spencer Dinwiddie suffered a season-ending injury Jan. 12. Pittsburgh will try to do the ACC proud.

5 Virginia Commonwealth (26-8, at-large)

12 Stephen F. Austin (31-2, Southland champion)

It's the battle of the underdogs! VCU has the cachet after its Final Four appearance in 2011; Stephen F. Austin wants to get there.

4 UCLA (26-8, Pac-12 champion)

13 Tulsa (21-12, Conference USA champion)

Historians may recall that fourth-seeded UCLA lost to 13th-seeded Princeton in 1996. Fortunately for the Bruins, this isn't 1996.

6 Ohio State (25-9, at-large)

11 Dayton (23-10, at-large)

Which Buckeyes will show up, the bunch that started 15-0 or the ones who lost five of their next six? Dayton's just happy to be here.

3 Syracuse (27-5, at-large)

14 Western Michigan (23-9, Mid-American champion)

Those who believe in symmetry will predict that the fading Orange lose; those who root for the Broncos will agree.

7 New Mexico (27-6, Mountain West champion)

10 Stanford (21-12, at-large)
