Baylor headlines the NCAA Tournament’s South Region with the program’s first No. 1 seed.

The Bears will open against 16th-seeded Hartford on Friday.

They had never been higher than a No. 3 seed previously.

Coach Scott Drew has guided the second-ranked Bears to two regional finals but hasn’t gotten them to a Final Four.

The bracket includes ninth-ranked Ohio State as the 2-seed, followed by No. 8 Arkansas, No. 20 Purdue and No. 14 Villanova.

The early matchups include North Carolina coach Roy Williams trying to stay perfect in first-round games when the Tar Heels face Wisconsin.
