MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The NCAA tournament seeds are set for Marquette and Wisconsin.

The Golden Eagles are a No. 3 seed in the West region and will face the winner of a play-in game between Iona and BYU. With a win, they would face the winner of the Murray State-Colorado State game.

The Badgers are a No. 4 seed in the East and will face Montana, the Big Sky champion. They would meet the winner of the Vanderbilt-Harvard game in the second round.

Both teams' first-round games are Thursday.

Marquette and Wisconsin both advanced to the second weekend of the tournament last year.
