WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Wake Forest earned the No. 1 overall seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament, the selection committee announced on Monday afternoon.

The Demon Deacons (17-1-2) receive a first-round bye, and will play the winner of Wednesday's game between William & Mary (11-4-5) and Columbia (11-2-3).

Wake Forest will open tournament play on Sunday at 5 p.m. at Spry Stadium. As the top overall seed, Wake Forest has the opportunity to host through the NCAA Quarterfinals before the College Cup in Philadelphia.

The Tribe, which will host the opening round game, enter as the automatic qualifiers from the Colonial after outscoring Hofstra, James Madison and UNCW by a 9-3 margin in the CAA Tournament.

The Lions received an at-large bid into the tournament. Columbia finished second in the Ivy League, which doesn't have a tournament, and is on a five-game shutout streak since a 2-1 loss to conference champs Dartmouth on Oct. 21.

Also on Wake Forest's side of the bracket is No. 16 seed VCU, which will host the winner of Butler and Lipscomb.

Potential quarterfinal meetings could include No. 8 seed Clemson (vs. winner of Coastal Carolina/Mercer) and No. 9 seed Stanford (vs. winner of Pacific/Cal State-Fullerton).

Tickets for Sunday are on sale now by clicking HERE. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for youth/seniors. College students with a valid college ID may purchase tickets for $1 in person at Bridger Field House box office, or at Spry Stadium the night of the game. Children 3-and-under are free.

A ticket will be required to sit on Walt Chyzowych Alumni Hill for the NCAA Tournament.
