SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (WNDU) - While Notre Dame will not play in the NCAA Tournament, there are some regional teams who will be dancing.

Indiana will be a 4 seed and face VCU in the first round of the tournament in the Mercado Region.

The No. 4 seed is the highest ranking for the Hoosiers ever in the tournament.

Indiana and VCU will square up on Monday March 22 at 2 PM on ESPNU.

Elsewhere in the Mercado Region, Michigan State has earned the 10 seed and will play the 7 seed Iowa State Cyclones in the first round.

Michigan state and Iowa state will duke it out Monday at 6 PM on ESPN.

In the River Ralk Region, Michigan is a 6 seed who will face 11 seed Florida Gulf Coast.
