    Following Saturday’s action, ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has shuffled his No. 1 seeds.

    Virginia, Villanova, Xavier and Kansas are the projected No. 1 seeds per Lunardi.

    Villanova beat Xavier on Saturday to give itself the inside track on winning a fifth straight Big East regular season title, while Kansas topped West Virginia to remain in the hunt for a 14th straight Big 12 regular season crown.

    The current alignment would give the Big East two of the four No. 1 seeds.

    The current 2 seeds are Auburn, Duke, Purdue and Michigan State.

    The 3s are Texas Tech, Cincinnati, Clemson and North Carolina.

    The 4s are Wichita State, Ohio State, Tennessee and Arizona.

    Among other teams of note, Rhode Island is a 5, Kentucky a 6 and Seton Hall a 9.

    The ACC has 10 projected teams in the Big Dance, the SEC and Big 12 eight apiece. The Big East has six,  the Big Ten four and the American three. The Pac-12 has just two.

    The last four in are Baylor, Texas, St. Bonaventure and Syracuse. The first four out UCLA, USC, Washington and Nebraska.
