Oregon may have taken the place of Michigan State for the fourth No. 1 regional seed in the NCAA Basketball Tournament bracket unveiled Sunday night.
But it is the Spartans and not the Ducks who join Kansas, North Carolina and Virginia in the first four spots in the Power 16 ratings that came on the heels of the NCAA revealing the 68-team field and bracket.

The most notable of those is Wednesday in Cincinnati, when Villanova – still top-ranked in the Power 16 – takes on No. 4 Xavier in a Big East showdown.
