UA's 81-67 win over USC clearly helped the Wildcats stay among the top 16 seeds.

The No. 3 seeds are: Clemson (20-4), Texas Tech (21-4), Michigan State (24-3) and North Carolina (19-7). However, this year the Team Sheets changed, and though teams are, obviously, still rewarded for wins like Virginia Tech's on Saturday, the weight of wins and losses is different.

The NCAA Division I basketball committee released its top 16 teams at this point in the season on Sunday and Clemson has impressed the committee with its play thus far.

Auburn, Kansas, Duke and Cincinnati were the No. 2 seeds. They also have four Quadrant 2 wins and only two losses outside Quadrant 1. Last season, 15 of the preliminary top 16 remained in that group for the bracket a month later. The Tigers, who extended their SEC lead to two games with a win at Georgia on Saturday, are sitting pretty as the fifth overall seed thanks to a almost flawless non-conference schedule and seven true road wins, including five in league play.

Parrot fell in his first two runs but nailed his third to bump McMorris out of the silver medal position with a score of 86.00. The top five highest-scoring teams from the short programs advanced to the free program round.


Kansas was the sixth overall seed and part of a stacked West region that included Arizona, North Carolina and Purdue. If those seeds held, Xavier would get preference for the Midwest Region in Omaha because it is the higher seed. Auburn's only losses this season have come against teams rated 17th (Texas A&M), 33rd (Alabama) and 39th in the RPI (Temple).

The No. 2 Cavaliers (23-2, 12-1 ACC) travel to No. 25 Miami (18-6, 7-5 ACC) on Tuesday to face the Hurricanes at 9 p.m.at the Watsco Center.

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