The Texas A&M Aggies have not had a lot of postponements this year. They have 22 wins to just one loss and six wins against currently ranked teams. And now they have the SEC regular season championship after their win over the South Carolina Gamecocks on Sunday and a 1-seed spot in the final Top 16 reveal released by the NCAA Tournament selection committee. The committee put them as the No. 3 overall seed on Sunday and that doesn’t even factor in their win over the Gamecocks.
Ahead of the Aggies are the No. 1 overall seed, the UConn Huskies, and the No. 2 Stanford Cardinal, who were No. 1 and No. 3, respectively, in the first reveal.
South Carolina fell two spots to No. 4 in the reveal, while the NC State Wolfpack moved up a spot to No. 5. The No. 6 Maryland Terrapins and No. 7 Arizona Wildcats are up one spot each as well and the Baylor Lady Bears, surprisingly a 3-seed in the first reveal, have moved up to where many felt they should have been as they round out the 2-line.
The 3-line begins with the Louisville Cardinals, who are down five spots, and follows with the UCLA Bruins, Georgia Bulldogs and Indiana Hoosiers. Indiana replaces the Oregon Ducks, now a 4-seed, on the 3-line. Oregon is No. 15 overall, while the Tennessee Lady Volunteers and Kentucky Wildcats remain 4-seeds and the Arkansas Razorbacks become the only team to move into the reveal, replacing the West Virginia Mountaineers.
