The Panthers are coming off an early loss in the Big East tournament, as Pittsburgh fell to Connecticut on Thursday in a quarterfinal game, 76-74. UConn got its own March Madness started, going on to win the Big East tournament after a magical run, beating Louisville in the final on Saturday.
The No. 2 seed is Florida, despite the Gators not winning the SEC Tournament, while Jimmer Fredette and BYU earns the No. 3 seed. The bracket certainly sets up well for Pittsburgh to make a deep run.
Here are the rest of the seeds in the Southeast Region:
- Kansas State
- St. John's
- Old Dominion
- Michigan State
- Utah State
- UC-Santa Barbara
- UNC-Asheville or Arkansas-Little Rock
