It was a tough week for Iowa State. The Cyclones were in good position to gain a No. 1 seed after Illinois lost to Ohio State, but they lost 94-78 at Texas to remain No. 2 in the Midwest, where a showdown would loom with Michigan State. Last year the Spartans narrowly beat the Cyclones in the Midwest Regional final, a game that many observers considered the best of the tournament.

It was a tough week for Iowa State. The Cyclones were in good position to gain a No. 1 seed after Illinois lost to Ohio State, but they lost 94-78 at Texas to remain No. 2 in the Midwest, where a showdown would loom with Michigan State. Last year the Spartans narrowly beat the Cyclones in the Midwest Regional final, a game that many observers considered the best of the tournament.

North Carolina's loss to Virginia allowed Duke to move into the top spot in the East. The Tar Heels were still able to hold on to a No. 1 seed but are now in the South. St. Joe's debuts as a No. 4. (Don't laugh; did you know the Hawks were a fourth seed in 1997?)
