    The NCAA Tournament Selection Committee released its first edition of the top 16 seeds for March Madness on Saturday. Here’s how it looks as we enter the midway part of February.


    With about four weeks remaining until Selection Sunday, the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee revealed how the top of the field would look if the season ended today.

    Committee chairman and Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis is helping the committee do things differently this year, as the selection process was revealed a bit to the public before Selection Sunday for the very first time. The panel unveiled its top 16 seeds (the top four in each region) ahead of the bracket’s full reveal on March 12.

    Here’s how the NCAA Tournament committee’s top 16 seeds looked on Saturday morning.
