The Musketeers (28-5) are No. 1 in the West Region and will face the First Four winner between North Carolina Central and Texas Southern on Thursday in Nashville.

Xavier had its highest ranking by reaching No. 3 in the AP Top 25 and earned the No. 1 seed in the West despite being upset by Providence in the Big East Tournament semifinals.
