One day before Selection Sunday, the top of the bracket is starting to take shape. Gonzaga has locked up a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament for the second straight year. Arizona will also get a No. 1 seed in Tommy Lloyd's head coaching debut. Kansas should join them with a win over Texas Tech in Saturday's Big 12 Tournament title game. And Kentucky should get a No. 1 seed, too, if it beats Tennessee on Saturday and then backs that with a win over either Arkansas or Texas A&M in Sunday's SEC Tournament title game.

If either Kansas or Kentucky slips, Baylor could get on the top line.

The Bears are 26-6 with a 10-5 record in Quadrant 1, and an 18-6 record in the first two quadrants, with only one loss falling outside of Quadrant 1. That's a résumé that guarantees Baylor will be no worse than a No. 2 seed in this NCAA Tournament

What a fun time of the year.

Saturday's semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament are on CBS in a doubleheader that starts at 1 p.m. ET. It'll be Indiana-Iowa followed by Purdue-Michigan State. Purdue is No. 9 in Saturday morning's updated CBS Sports Top 25 And 1 daily college basketball rankings. Iowa is No. 21 and Michigan State is up to No. 24 after Friday's big win over Wisconsin, which dropped to No. 16 in the Top 25 And 1.
