And the No. 1 seeds are ... Shocking?

Each week until Selection Sunday, college basketball writer Marcus Jackson will give us his top four seeds for each region.
Here’s the latest look:

1. Syracuse (Big East)
2. Iowa State (Big 12)
— We will learn a lot more about the Cyclones over the next three games against Kansas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
3. Villanova (Big East)
4. Cincinnati (American)

1. Michigan State (Big Ten)
— The Spartans are extremely banged up, but when healthy, Tom Izzo’s squad is on a short list of teams who can win it all.
2. Kansas (Big 12)
3. Wisconsin (Big Ten)
4. Kentucky (SEC)

1. Wichita St. (Missouri Valley)
— Having reached the Final Four last season, few will doubt whether the Shockers belong as a top seed out of a non-power conference.
2. Florida (SEC)
3. Michigan (Big Ten)
4. Oklahoma State (Big 12)

1. Arizona (Pac-12)
2. San Diego St. (Mountain W.)
3. Creighton (Big East)
— Doug McDermott & Co. have remained steady in the move to the new Big East and opened eyes with a blowout win at Villanova last week.
4. Iowa (Big Ten)
