Field Set for March Madness

Louisville, Pittsburgh, North Carolina and Connecticut are the top seeds in the NCAA men's basketball tournament. The Cardinals are the top seed in the entire tournament, as well the Midwest, while Pittsburgh is No. 1 in the East, Carolina in the South and Connecticut in the West.

All but North Carolina come from the Big East. This marks the first time three top seeds have come from the same conference.

During a week of conference tournaments in which very little went to form, Louisville came out with a championship to seal its No. 1 seed. Connecticut lost a six-overtime thriller to Syracuse in the Big East quarterfinals, but that wasn't enough to drop the Huskies out of a top spot.
