Duke, Kansas top preseason Seed List, Bracket

Dave2015As we begin another journey toward Selection Sunday, a pair of familiar names headline the preseason Seed List and Bracket: Duke and Kansas. Both the Blue Devils and Jayhawks are loaded with talent and experience.  Duke opens as the No. 1 seed in the East, Kansas as No. 1 in the Midwest.

Although Kentucky (No. 1 / South) and Villanova (No. 1 / West) occupy spots three and four on the Seed List, keep an eye on Oregon.  The Ducks are going to be good again – and if Dillon Brooks were healthy, they would have been slotted just ahead of Villanova for the top spot in San Jose.  We’ll see how it plays out.

Opinions vary greatly in November, as do expectations – especially once you meander past the top few teams.  Projections are a starting point, not an ending one.  The road to March will be filled with twists, turns, and speed bumps.  Expect a few surprises and a few disappointments.  That’s the way it works.  It’s why they play the games.

As noted in a column last week, the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) is a juggernaut.  While I’m skeptical that double-digit teams will make the actual Field of 68, it’s not impossible. It should be quite a race atop the Big Ten, and the Big East will be heard from too – defending champ Villanova could easily make another push for the Final Four. Count aforementioned Oregon in the discussion.  Who knows?  Maybe this is the year that Gonzaga breaks through.  Regardless, it should be an incredible ride.

Thank you for following along.  Please interact on Twitter @BracketguyDave. Like our new Facebook page.  And be ready for news about another “Fan” Bracket this year – done in the form of the NCAA mock process.

Enjoy the journey.
