WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Undefeated Wichita State's magical run will continue as the top seed in the Midwest Region of the NCAA tournament.
The Shockers (34-0) will face the winner of Wednesday's first-round game in Dayton, Ohio, between Cal Poly (13-19) and Texas Southern (19-14). The game will be played Friday in St. Louis.
Wichita State reached the Final Four last season as a No. 9 seed before losing to eventual national champion Louisville in the national semifinals.
The Shockers matched the NCAA record for victories to start the season by UNLV in 1990-91 after going 18-0 in the Missouri Valley Conference in the regular season. They won their first conference tournament since 1987 with a win over Indiana State in the championship game.

Virginia joined Florida, Wichita State and Arizona as a No. 1 seed Sunday when the selection committee announced the pairings for the NCAA tournament.

Wichita State, the top seed in the Midwest, comes in at 34-0 -- the first team to enter the tournament undefeated since UNLV in 1991. The Shockers will play the winner of Wedensday's first round game between Texas Southern (19-14) and Cal Poly (13-19).

The Cavaliers, widely considered a 2 or 3 seed in many mock-ups of the bracket, instead vaulted to the top of the East region. They won the ACC regular-season and tournament titles.

March Madness begins Tuesday with a pair of "First Four" games in Dayton, Ohio.

The Gators bring a 26-game winning streak into the tournament. They are seeded first in the South and are the No. 1 seed overall.

The Final Four starts April 5 in Arlington, Texas.
