We're just a couple of weeks away from the 2018 NCAA Tournament. Selection Sunday is set for Sunday, March 11. The tournament can't get here soon enough.

Bracket projections are really heating up. There's been a lot of action at the top of the college basketball rankings lately.

Who's in-line to land No. 1 seeds? Here is the latest.

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, 24-2

2. Villanova, 24-3

3. Xavier, 24-4

4. Kansas, 21-6

Auburn is another team that's in contention for a No. 1 seed, but the Tigers fell off the top line following Saturday's loss at South Carolina. Duke, Purdue and Texas Tech were the other No. 2 seeds in Lunardi's latest projection.
