Projecting The Field Of 68 (No. 3)

The March to March is still underway in the college basketball world as conference tournaments begins this week and most conferences conclude their regular season this week.

Remember, every single game of the NCAA Tournament will be played in the state of Indiana at a few different sites, but we know the Final Four and National Championship games (April 3 & 5) will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium (home of the fixed 2015 National Championship game).

This is my third 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, March 2.

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.
