Gonzaga is the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament but they will have to wait until later this week to see who they play in the first round.

The undefeated Bulldogs will play the winner between Norfolk State and Appalachian State.

Iowa, Kansas and Virginia were the other top seeds in the bracket. USC is also awaiting a first-round opponent. They will play the winner between Wichita State and Drake.
