NOTES:
  • Emphasis on head-to-head match-ups to keep seed line "true"
  • All "3rd conference rematch" scenarios are factored to assign teams by region.

OPINION:
  • St. Mary's (AP #13) is the toughest evaluation.  
    • Quality wins are New Mexico St. and Gonzaga
    • Undefeated in WCC.
    • Bad loss to Washington State
  • Syracuse needs a Top 50 RPI win to get in the field.  Currently, their best win is a home game against Buffalo.
