NOTES:
  • All "3rd conference rematch" scenarios are (still) factored to assign teams by region.
  • Seeds 12-16 are placeholders by projected conference winner, RPI, and Team Rank.

OPINION:
  • Xavier and Auburn are very close.  Despite a blowout loss to Villanova, quality wins favor XU to secure the final #1 seed.
  • Today, Kansas St. and Virginia Tech are the same evaluation.  Both are OUT.
  • Michigan St. continues to be favored by the BPI.  With only one quality win (UNC), they are placed on the 5 line.
