Here is my latest edition of bracketology taking into account all games through Thursday 2/18.


I seriously considered moving Purdue up to the 1 seed line and Villanova down to a 2; both are a 1/2 game out in their league and have 3 losses. Purdue has been playing better than Villanova as of late, but I am keeping the Wildcats on the 1 seed line for now. Villanova's better RPI and SOS are the deciding factors for now, but if Purdue wins out and wins the Big 10 they will likely get a 1 seed.


A perfectly balanced bracket will have the true seeds of each team in each region add up to 520. For bracketing Principles & Procedures, avoiding rematches, and moving teams closer to home this balance will occasionally get altered. In this bracket the four regions have true seed totals of 521, 520, 520 and 519.


Auto bids are in CAPS and are the current conference leaders with ties broken by RPI. Teams such as UNLV and UAB are written as Unlv and Uab to avoid confusion. The winner of the Midwest Region will play the winner of the East Region; the winner of the West Region will play the winner of the South Region.
