Bracketology: Duke grabs No. 1 overall seed

Dave2015We could well be in for a few surprises when the Selection Committee announces its pairings this evening.  At full strength, and with an ACC tournament title in hand, the Duke Blue Devils being this year’s No. 1 overall seed will surprise no one.

As for the remaining No. 1 seeds, Virginia seems like a sure bet for No. 2 overall, slotted to the South.  Then, the debate begins.  North Carolina is playing as well as anyone.  Gonzaga lost only three games all season, although two of those were to UNC and Tennessee.  The final spots will likely come down to UNC, Tennessee, Gonzaga and Michigan State, if the Spartans beat Michigan a third time.  We’ve also seen the Committee make a final decision about the Big 10 before the game is played.

Oregon threw one final wrench into the bubble last night by beating Washington in the Pac-12 title game.  Who the Ducks knocked out remains to be seen.  It could have been one the quality mid-majors on the board, or it could even be conference foe Arizona State.  One final review coming ahead of the mid-afternoon final bracket.
