Bracket: Eight teams in the race for No. 1 seeds

dave1Headlined by unbeaten Kentucky, eight teams enter the stretch run toward Selection Sunday as No. 1 seed contenders.  Based on the Seed List for today’s bracket, those contenders in order are: Kentucky, Virginia, Gonzaga, Kansas, Duke, Arizona, Wisconsin, and Villanova.

Bracket Update – February 6

Seed List – February 6

Notre Dame and Louisville could potentially enter the mix, although the Irish, in particular, have a major hurdle to overcome: a non-conference schedule ranked among the worst in college basketball (No. 326).  That type of non-league schedule likely won’t be rewarded by the Selection Committee unless the Irish win the Atlantic Coast Conference (season and tourney).

With the Super Bowl behind us, March Madness begins to grab headlines.  So if you’re just settling back into college hoops, here’s one other thing you need to know about the bracket and overall landscape of the projected NCAA tournament field, as of today.  There’s a lot of mediocre teams and resumes.  The proverbial bubble?  It basically includes teams seeded 8th or lower, and some of the 7-seeds have question marks.  Which means that much of the bracket will ebb and flow over the next month.  Much like the weather, if you’re not satisfied, wait a couple of days – it’s likely to change.
