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)

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.

DECEMBER 12  | 1-68
1. Villanova 2. Michigan St 3. Duke 4. Arizona State
5. Texas AM 6. North Carolina 7. Wichita State 8. Xavier

63. Lamar 64. UC-Davis 65. Navy 66. Wagner
67. Morgan State 68. Tx-Southern

This is where the FIRST OUT at-large teams begin. While USC (in this case) isn’t rated lower than Texas-Southern (per this update) automatic qualifiers have to be ranked within the Field of 68.
