Inside the Bracket: Seed list (s-curve) update for March 14
Today may end up being a critical juncture for several teams. While the Selection Committee does not over-value what it sees in the final few days of a long season, a team’s entire resume has to be examined. So what happens today (and Friday) still matters.
March 14 S-curve (seed list) | March 14, 7:45 a.m.
Not much has changed at the bottom of the bracket or the seed list. That probably won’t be the case by Saturday morning. Our Last 5 IN today: Boise State, Iowa State, La Salle, Saint Mary’s, Kentucky. The First 5 OUT: Virginia, Baylor, Middle Tennessee State, Ole Miss, Alabama. Teams chasing include: Iowa, Massachusetts, Arkansas, Xavier and Arizona State.
Duke, Indiana, Gonzaga, and Louisville continue to lead the bracket. At this point, Duke and Indiana likely have No. 1 seeds locked up. Gonzaga is in good shape, too. Which leaves one – possibly two – spots up for grabs. Guess is that if Louisville or Georgetown wins the Big East title, the Cards or Hoyas will grab a top seed, the other will be a No. 2. If Kansas rolls through the Big 12 tournament, we can’t eliminate the Jayhawks from that conversation either. Then you have a second Big Ten team, potentially Michigan or Michigan State. Miami-FL would be a wildcard. But for all of that to unfold, someone would have to pass Gonzaga on the seed list (s-curve).
Enjoy a great day of college hoops!
