*-TCU is listed as a No. 7 seed, but is actually a No. 8 seed in the overall S-Curve but was moved up to the 7th line for a procedural change regarding tournament rematch restrictions, to avoid a rematch with Syracuse from the 2018 tournament. Auburn was moved down from a No. 7 to a No. 8 as a result.
