College Basketball Field of 68 - Bracket (March 15, 2014)

Thursday and Friday were two great days of basketball and provided a wealth of information regarding teams.  With only two days remaining and most of that Conference Tournament Championships, the movement will be far less in the coming days.  Here are some of the things I will be looking for.
  • If Michigan or Wisconsin wins the Big 10 Tournament, they will fill the last #1 seed.  Otherwise it will be anyone's best guess.
  • If Iowa State beats Baylor for the Big 12 Title, they will be a #2.  If not, Kansas probably holds the #2.
  • A #2 Seed will go to whichever ACC team goes further between Virginia and Duke
  • Louisville gets 1st dibs on the last #3, followed by San Diego State and Syracuse.  Michigan State could also stake claim with a Big 10 Tourney Championship.
  • Ohio State holds the last #4, but probably needs to beat Michigan to hold it.  UCLA, Connecticut and Cincinnati are in line behind the Buckeyes.
  • If VCU wins the Atlantic 10, it will likely get a #5 seed.  Otherwise, the A-10's highest seed will likely be #6.
  • My last 4 in are Dayton, SMU, Providence and BYU.  There are a couple bid stealers left out there to watch in the SEC, ACC and A-10, but if none of those come to fruition, this will likely be my at-large field.
