Who Is The Number 1 Seed?
At 6p.m. EDT Sunday, the NCAA Tournament Selection Show will announce the 68 teams slated to play for the NCAA Basketball Championship. Thirty-one teams with automatic bids (by virtue of winning their conference) will be joined by 37 at-large selections to participate in the three week tournament commencing March 21 and finishing with the championship game on April 8. The 68 teams in the tournament will be seeded 1-16 in four different brackets. The question is: Who will get the coveted 1-seeds?
Three teams seem like locks for 1-seeds: Gonzaga, Louisville, and Indiana. The fourth, and final, 1-seed is more of a toss-up. Duke or Kansas will most likely receive the honor.
Duke would have locked it up if not for their upset at the hands of Maryland on Friday night, their first loss with Ryan Kelly in the line-up, but opened up the door for Kansas, who steam-rolled through the Big 12 Tournament and look poised for a tournament run.
