Today it was made official.

Jackson State, the SWAC champion, is the #4 seed.

LSU (52-9) was awarded the #4 national seed after winning the Southeastern Conference tournament final yesterday.  North Carolina, Vanderbilt and Oregon State were seeded higher than the Tigers.

The Cajuns (41-18) are the #2 seed in a regional for the first time since 2007.  it's their first regional appearance since 2010 when they were the #3 seed in the Austin Regional.
