Clemson looking good in first NCAA March Madness bracket preview

Where did Keita Bates Diop and the Ohio State Buckeyes land when the NCAA Tournament selection committee revealed it top 16 teams

If the NCAA tournament were to be determined today, Arizona would be a No. 4 seed in the West, which is pretty consistent with how many have projected.

The No. 2 seeds are: Auburn (22-3), Kansas (19-6), Duke (19-5) and Cincinnati (22-2). Under current Tennessee head coach Rick Barnes, Clemson made it to the Sweet 16 of the 1997 tournament.

With just four weeks left until the entire NCAA Tournament bracket is posted, Auburn is still now among a group of contenders for a No. 1 seed. Previously, Clemson has been a No. 4 seed on two occasions. Experts on the show said as much.

"Really proud of the way our guys have played this year, gotten off to a great start, certainly have a little work left to finish". The final bracket for the NCAA Tournament will be revealed March 11.

Clemson will hit the hardwood on Wednesday, Feb. 14 when it travels to Florida State for a showdown with the Seminoles.

Auburn will take its title of being in sole possession of the SEC by two games back home for a Valentines Night attraction as they host No. 24 Kentucky for a 8 p.m. tip on ESPN2. Duke, Texas Tech and Ohio State joined Villanova in the East, to be played in Boston. Clemson is now ranked 16th by the Associated Press and 15th in the USA Today Coaches Poll.
