For the first time ever, the NCAA Tournament selection committee provided a peek into how they have teams ranked for the Big Dance at this point in the season.

On Saturday, the top 16 overall seeds in the tournament were unveiled, four from each region. The Oregon Ducks are sitting in a good spot as the No. 2 seed in the West Region in San Jose, along with No. 1 Gonzaga, No. 3 Virginia and No. 4 West Virginia.

Here are the rest of the top 16 seeds around the nation:

Oregon currently sits at No. 5 in the nation with a 21-4 record after their loss on the road to UCLA this week. They'll try and get back in the win column when they face USC tonight.

Elsewhere around the Pac-12, the committee has UCLA as the No. 4 seed in the East Region while Arizona is the No. 3 seed in the Midwest Region.

What are your thoughts on the rankings? Who has the toughest group at this point? Did anyone get snubbed?
