Selection Sunday is approaching in about seven weeks. Our current bracketology projected field reflects a current snapshot of where each team stands.
There are now under two months remaining in the NCAA Basketball regular-season and the bracketology picture is starting to become a bit clearer. Most notably, the No. 1 seeds are pretty universally agreed upon by bracketologists across the country with Baylor, Kansas, San Diego State, and Gonzaga leading the way. These will surely change prior to Selection Sunday but all appear to be entrenched in those top spots and are playing at high levels as of late.
Additionally, there are a number of solid teams hoping to land protected seeds. These teams range from national regulars such as Duke and Michigan State to former mid-majors like Dayton and Butler. It has been an intriguing season across the country from start to finish and that should make for a fantastic final two months. The top of the bracket is far from set with two months left to play but the bubble is even harder to figure out.
From here on out, I will be posting bracketology updates twice per week (Tuesdays and Fridays) with regard to the projected field. Those pieces will sandwich my complete Bubble Watch breakdowns of each team under at-large consideration that release on Wednesdays – be on the lookout for the next one coming soon.
Now, without any further ado, let’s dive into the new projected field following the weekend. This bracketology update takes into account all games played through Monday, Jan. 27th.
