Seed List

Below are two tables that display the current Seed List (at the time of publication) – a tool used for my bracket projects and by the actual Selection Committee to seed teams into the bracket.

A couple of things to note:

Teams listed in BOLD are those noted as the projected automatic conference qualifier, per how the bracket is put together.

The Seed List is not a poll.  It is a ranking of teams based on the overall field at the time of publication.  Whether it’s RPI, KenPom or some other metric, a variety of factors go into the Seed List at any given point in time.  The Seed List reflects the 68-team field – and  the Top 100 teams (at the time)

Updated: December 11 |  12:00 p.m. ET

To make it easier to follow, I didn’t use an actual “S” shape on the table; rather the highest seed on each line is to the left.
