Xavier got a little too high over its win over Villanova earlier this week, and ran into a team that needed and wanted it more in Seton Hall on Saturday.

The result was a 90-81 win for the Pirates, which really helped their tournament resume.

The news isn’t so good for the Musketeers, who will fall from the top line of the bracket.

Michigan State will move up to take Xavier’s place as a No. 1 seed.

The Spartans have certainly had the look of a No. 1 seed for about a month, and they have built a profile to back it up. Michigan State has won eight of its last nine, with the only loss coming in overtime at Purdue.
