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.

Virginia was the overall No. 1 seed followed by Villanova, Xavier and Purdue. "We initially felt Villanova was the overall top seed, but we flipped that Thursday morning after the Wildcats lost to St. John's at home and Virginia won at Florida State".

Check out a breakdown of the current regional matchups below.

Duke is now the No. 7 team in the nation in the eyes of the NCAA men's basketball selection committee, which revealed its top 16 teams up to this point in the season Sunday afternoon on CBS. The official tournament bracket will be revealed on Sunday, March 11. "Purdue had two tough losses to quality teams, while Xavier picked up two good road wins to solidify the fourth No. 1 seed and ultimately leap Purdue on the seed list".

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. That's fewer than most other teams in the top 16. It will likely be ranked in the top three of the Associated Press poll on Monday. "You just embrace the challenge and you go at it a game at a time". Who knows if you'll get that chance?
