It's funny how things can change so quickly. Last week, prior to Saturday, Oklahoma State was the last team out of my bracket. Now with wins in the last week over Kansas State and Texas A&M, the Cowboys are all the way up to a #6 seed.
Things also changed quickly for Kentucky who was the #1 overal seed just briefly, before losing their undefeated mark at South Carolina. The Wildcats hang on to the last #1 seed for now, but they must watch out for Texas, Kansas State and Duke who all have better computer numbers.
Without further ado my top seeds:
#1 Seeds: Kansas (#1 overall seed), Villanova, Syracuse, Kentucky
#2 Seeds: Duke, Kansas State, Texas, Michigan State
#3 Seeds: Georgetown, West Virginia, Purdue, Vanderbilt
#4 Seeds: Pittsburgh, Gonzaga, Wisconsin, Temple
You can find the rest of my bracket, including pairings and locations, here .
A couple of notes on procedural changes made within the bracket:
Kansas would normally get the winner of the Play-In (Opening Round) Game as the #1 Overall Seed, but they are given geographic prefence and placed in Oklahoma City for the 1st two rounds. Oklahoma City is a Thurs./Sat. site; the Play-In winner must play in a Fri./Sun. site and is thus placed against Villanova in Buffalo in my bracket.
Xavier and Rhode Island were switched spots in order to avoid a rematch between Kansas St. and Xavier in the 2nd Round. Otherwise Xavier would have been a 7 seed and Rhode Island an 8 seed.
As always questions and comments are appreciated.
