Seed List

SeedListGraphicBelow 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 in BOLD represent the automatic bid based on league results at the time of publication.

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 NET, 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.
