Virginia named 1st seed in South Region

The Virginia Cavaliers earned the number-one seed in the South Region for the 2019 men's NCAA Tournament.

What It Means:

This is the fourth time in the past six years Virginia has earned a top bid. They are one of three ACC teams to earn a number-one seed, along with the Duke Blue Devils (East Region) and North Carolina Tar Heels (Midwest Region). Virginia became the first one seed in men's NCAA Tournament history to lose to a 16-seed last year. They will look to avenge that defeat on Friday versus the number-16 Gardner-Webb Runnin' Bulldogs.

The Cavaliers are 3rd in numberFire's NCAA Basketball Team Rankings.
