The NCAA tournament is set to roll and there are a few surprises in the line up. The tournament which begins on Tuesday, with a pair of First Four games, will see 32 of the 64 teams in the main draw going for the trophy.

The surprises come in the form of seeding, and among the teams that are set to hit the game floor, Virginia has been ranked No. 1 seed.

Meanwhile, Louisville, has been seeded fourth in the Midwest, though everyone witnessed their top class performance earlier. Buzz was that they should have been seeded No 1. Check out the printable bracket here.

CBS News said in a report on March 16 that SMU, which also had performed fairly well, has not been seeded at all. Michigan State, which saw a resurgence by winning the Big Ten tournament, is only a No. 4 seed.

Detailing the reasons for Virginia being seeded on top, Ron Wellman, the chairman of the selection committee, said the team’s twin “ACC championships - regular season and tournament - made the Cavaliers (28-6) the choice for a 1 seed over Michigan and Villanova, despite an RPI rating of 11”.
