Latest Bracket: Kentucky leads countdown to Selection Sunday

dave1We’re now a month from Selection Sunday, and Madness continues around the bubble.  Weekend results did little to change this scenario, so the same rules apply: If your team is seeded 8th or lower they have work to do.  In fact, we have a few teams on the 8/9 seed line that should probably be 11/12 seeds.  That’s where we stand.  Championship Week will be must-see TV.

Bracket Update: February 16

Seed List: February 16

Unbeaten Kentucky (25-0) continues to lead the Field of 68.  At this point, it would take multiple glitches for UK to lose its reign on the Midwest Region.  Elsewhere at the top of the bracket, Virginia, Gonzaga, and Duke continue to hold No. 1 seeds. If Kansas, Villanova, Wisconsin, and Arizona also keep winning, there will be some interesting discussions among Selection Committee members regarding the top two seed lines. Keep this in mind: Although the Committee will “balance” regions for the Top 4 seed lines, geographic preference remains a priority – as long as other bracketing principles can be met.  Thus, we’re likely to see Arizona in the West and Wisconsin in the Midwest regardless of their spot on the 2-line, assuming both stay in that group.

We’ll see how much the bottom of the bracket changes by Friday.  Until then, enjoy another whacky few days of college hoops.
