Quick Takes: UK-UNC go after a possible No. 1 seed

IDave2015t might be December, but the race for No. 1 seeds is already underway.  Case in point: Kentucky and North Carolina battle Saturday in Las Vegas.  The winner gains an upper-hand should both teams remain top line contenders in March.  It could also be critical for location.  For example, let’s say UNC and UK both finish as top-flight seeds.  Who gets placed in the South Region?  Saturday’s tilt could prove to be a tie-breaker for the Committee’s Seed List.  If Joel Berry is healthy for Carolina, expect a fast-paced, back-and-forth affair.  And given UK’s home loss to UCLA, the outcome is probably more critical for the Wildcats.  A loss to the Tar Heels would leave Big Blue 0-2 against its toughest competition, with a game against rival Louisville as the only headliner left on its non-conference docket.

Here’s a closer look at this weekend’s other Bracket games …

Bracket Headliners:

  • Purdue vs. Notre Dame
  • Butler vs. Indiana
  • Texas AM at Arizona

Bracket Seed-Liners:

  • Ohio State at UCLA
  • Oklahoma State vs. Wichita State

Bracket Bubble-Games:

  • Georgetown at Syracuse
  • Illinois vs. BYU
  • Dayton vs. Northwestern
  • Middle Tennessee State at VCU
  • Memphis at Oklahoma
  • Arkansas vs. Texas

Bracket Watchers:

  • Texas Tech at Richmond
  • Northern Iowa vs. Iowa
  • Wake Forest at Xavier
  • Indiana State at Valparaiso
  • Chattanooga at Vanderbilt

Enjoy a great Saturday of college hoops.  Sunday, keep an eye on Alabama and Clemson.  That’s a nice under-the-radar Bracket Watcher game, too.
