#5 Villanova: Closest first week sites: Buffalo 278 mi, Raleigh 338 mi. Villanova to Buffalo.

#6 Michigan. Closest sites: Buffalo and Milwaukee both 238 miles. Judgement call looking at options. Michigan to Milwaukee.

Shaheen has been nothing short of amazing on twitter the last 24 hours. If you aren't following him, look him up and read through. Agree with their seedings or not, it is amazing insight to the committee thinking.
 
Michigan to Milwaukee made more sense because its B1G country. Buffalo isn't B1G country or really any conference territory so it made sense to send Michigan to Milwaukee and Syracuse to Buffalo rather each going to the other spot which would have happened based on the NCAA's S-Curve.
