Drive for 65: Teams make one final push
"Selection Sunday" is March 14, which means we're five days away. Here is our latest look at how we think the NCAA tournament field will look when it is unveiled that day.
It's important to note that this is a projection, not how the field would look if it were decided today.
We will do this again Friday, then update on Saturday and Sunday.
Teams are grouped by projected seed and listed from strongest to weakest within that seed. At the bottom is a breakdown by league of the number of projected bids and some information on the makeup of the field, the selection committee and the sites.
Last season, in the final projection, we picked 64 of the 65 teams, had 35 seeded correctly and had another 22 one seed off. The Web site bracketproject.com tracks this type of thing, and Rivals.com finished second among the 61 brackets that were followed. (Here's the list).
(Note: Teams in bold already have clinched bids. Asterisked teams must win their conference titles to receive an NCAA bid. RPI figures are through Monday and come from collegerpi.com.)
