It’s been a while since I’ve been able to post a NCAA bracket for college basketball, but with Selection Sunday JUST 12 days away, it’s a good time as any to get back into things as the field is slowly starting to take shape for the 2013 NCAA tourney.
The field is just about set, as majority of the field, at least the at-larges, are set and are in good shape. The only obstacle for the few bubble teams are the potential of bid thieves during conference tournaments, which actually get underway today.
Indiana, Duke and Gonzaga are currently in the best positions for #1 seeds, while Georgetown right now has the edge over Kansas for the final #1 spot; though both are slotted in the South Regional. (And FYI, Georgetown cannot play in the East Regional as they are hosting the East Regional at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.)
There are some good battles going on for the #2 line as well! Currently the #2 seeds are occupied by Kansas, Michigan, Miami and Florida with New Mexico and Louisville being in the mix as well (New Mexico actually ranks No. 2 in RPI).
So, who are the last four in & last 4 out?
Our last four in are Villanova, Iowa State, Kentucky and Tennessee with our last four out being Virginia, Southern Miss, Alabama and UMass. We’ll break down those teams and a few others in a later post as we get closer to Selection Sunday on March 17.
Here is our current bracket for the 2013 NCAA tourney:
And remember, you can track my bracket along with many other bracketologists, including the one and only Joe Lunardi, at The Bracket Project.
Enjoy the end of the regular season, everyone!
