So, who is benefiting from the expanded field of 68 teams? According to the guys over at Bracketography.com, it appears to be Baylor, Maryland, Virginia Tech and Duquesne. Think Seth Greenberg is loving the three additional slots? His teams are always on the bubble because they play nobody during the regular season, win a couple big games in conference and end up with like a 9-7 record in league play.
The last four teams out right now are VCU, Gonzaga, Clemson and Kansas State. I’m sure K-State’s win over Kansas last night will help their cause.
The four No. 1′s are Pittsburgh, Duke, Texas and Ohio State. At this point, Kansas appears to be the only 2-seed that has a shot of jumping up to the 1-line.
Louisville is seeded as a five in the Southeast bracket. They would face the winner of Duquesne and Virginia Tech in Tampa and then face either Florida or College of Charleston to get to the Sweet 16. They are matched up with Ohio State, Notre Dame, and UConn as the 1, 2, and 3.
Kentucky is a six in the West and will face Michigan State in the first round in Washington, D.C. Villanova and Coastal Carolina will stand in their way of a Sweet Sixteen berth. The 1, 2, 3 and 4 are Duke, San Diego St., ‘Nova and ‘Cuse.
