Projecting The Field Of 68, No. 2

Top ranked Gonzaga got a scare from the Santa Clara Broncos last night before the officials made sure Gonzaga wouldn’t lose.

This is my second edition of where I think teams will be seeded if the tournament started today. Of course, there’s still plenty of regular season games and conference tournament games where teams can improve their resume and move up or move down.

Disclaimer: These aren’t my final predictions of where I think teams will finish in terms of seeding. These are my seeds if the tournament started today, February 26.

In my seeding, it goes in order from top to bottom in terms of who I think the No. 1 team is on that seed line and who the No. 4 team is on that seed line.

Remember, there are four play-in games.
