The first is Virginia. I think everyone is in agreement there.


The second team:
Is 5th in RPI
is 11-3 vs RPI Tier 1.
8-2 vs Tier 2.
Is 3rd in SOS


Looking at the metrics the committee claims they will emphasize, you can all but assure that Kansas will be a 1 seed, regardless of the outcome of their final game at OSU and first game of conference tournament.

If Kansas wins out people gonna be surprised when they end up the #2 or 3 overall 1 and bump somebody else out west. It’s gonna happen man.

Virginia, Big East champ, and Kansas (if they win the conference tourney) are all locks. Kansas might still be a 1 if they lose in the tourney.

Yep, the 4 One Seeds are basically set unless Duke or MSU win out and beat UVA and UNC or Purdue and OSU in the process of winning a conference title while Xavier loses before the conference finals.

Impossible for MSU to beat both OSU and Purdue. Wrong end of the bracket. We would play UM and the Purdue/OSU winner.
