Inside the Bracket: Race for final No. 1 seed continues

dave1We’re less than 12 hours from the release of the 2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship bracket.  And the final No. 1 seed may not be decided.  By reaching the Big Ten title game, Michigan is probably the frontrunner having already won the regular-season title.  Should Michigan fall to rival Michigan State, Virginia will be knocking on the door if the Cavaliers beat Duke and win both the ACC regular season and tournament titles.  Lest we forget about Villanova.  The Wildcats could still emerge as the East Region leader if both the Wolverines and Cavaliers lose.

Bracket Update

In other words, the Selection Committee in Indianapolis will spend its Sunday building multiple brackets depending on what happens this afternoon.  Florida will be the top overall seed.  Arizona and Wichita State should also be locked in place.

Providence erased any doubt about its spot in the Field of 68 by winning the Big East tournament Saturday night.  The three potential bid thieves from Saturday (NC State, Georgia, St. Bonaventure) all lost.  So the rest of the field remains in tact.

Enjoy your Selection Sunday.  A final bracket will be posted prior to the Selection Show today after a final seed analysis and Sunday’s results.

    This means also, if St. Joseph’s beats VCU–then we will probably have a reshuffling of some of the seeds. In the Big Ten, if the Spartans beat Michigan–then there will be a whole handful of teams looking to slide into that final number 1 slot.
    That is why they play the games.
