We’re just a couple of weeks away from the 2018 NCAA Tournament. In fact, we're exactly two weeks away from Selection Sunday, which is March 11.

If you're like us, the tournament can’t get here soon enough.

Bracket projections are changing almost daily. The Big Ten Tournament gets underway this Wednesday, and then the other major conferences follow suit the following week.

There is still a lot that needs to play out before the final bracket is revealed. Right now, there are four clear-cut No. 1 seeds.

If the NCAA Tournament started today, the following four teams would be No. 1 seeds, according to ESPN bracketologist Joe Lunardi.

The four No. 1s:

1. Virginia, 26-2

2. Villanova, 25-4

3. Xavier, 25-4

4. Kansas, 23-6

Duke, Michigan State and Purdue are likely the three next-in-line for a No. 1 seed. Auburn and Texas Tech could sneak up to that line, but would need a hot streak and some help.
