It will likely be ranked in the top three of the Associated Press poll on Monday.

For the second straight year, the committee released the top four seeds in each region four weeks before the Selection Sunday announcements.

The NCAA Tournament selection committee has Auburn among the top five teams in the country. The Boilermakers were the No. 4 overall seed and the Jayhawks were put with them to balance out the bracket, according to Bruce Rasmussen, who chairs the committee.

With Virginia now the No. 1 overall seed and in the South region, which will be played in Atlanta, Auburn would have to go to the next closest geographic region. Instead, the Spartans were named as one of the four No. 3 seeds.

"The sleeper team to get to the 1 line is Texas Tech", Davis said, noting their current standing in the Big 12 and potential to pick up another big time win, when they face KU at home on February 24.

South: 1. Virginia, 2.

The Tigers were one of two SEC teams to earn a spot in the top 16: Tennessee was pegged as the No. 4 seed in the South region.

The No. 2 seeds are: Auburn (22-3), Kansas (19-6), Duke (19-5) and Cincinnati (22-2). Duke, Texas Tech and Ohio State joined Villanova in the East, to be played in Boston. Auburn was placed in the Midwest region (Omaha, Neb.) with Xavier.

The reveal provides insight into the selection committee's thinking exactly a month before Selection Sunday, on March 11.
