07:14 PM ET 03.17 | There was some drama surrounding the final No. 1 seed in the March Madness tournament, as the Ohio State Buckeyes made a real case this weekend for earning the final spot. But the voting committee ended up giving the final No. 1 seed to Gonzaga, who boasted all the right requirements on the resume to earn a No. 1 seed. But the question becomes, did they get the No. 1 seed because they deserve it or did they get it on a technicality? Even though they didn't get the No. 1 seed in the region, the Ohio State Buckeyes managed to snag a No. 2 seed and grabbed a favorable matchup against Iona. Another team hoping for a high seed, New Mexico grabbed the No. 3 seed in the West and a matchup with Harvard who are making yet another tournament appearance.
