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 automatic conference qualifier, per how the bracket is put together (league leader at the time of posting).

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: January 19 |  9:30 a.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.
