Bracketology

According to Espn’s Joe Lunardi’s bracketology, there are four PAC-12 teams currently expected to make the NCAA tournament. Oregon is currently a six seed and if they run the table should have a chance to get to a 4 or a 5.

If Oregon makes the championship or semi’s and loses I think they will possibly be a 5 or 6. USC is currently a 6 seed and depending on their performance I think they could go anywhere from a 5 to 7 seed. Colorado is a 5 seed that will be locked in between 4 and 6. UCLA is right now a 10 seed, if they lose their first game against Oregon State they should be still in the field but will probably move to Lunardi’s last four in. But will need 1 win to lock themselves in the tourney.

If UCLA runs the table they should get up to a 1 seed. Stanford has been a bubble team recently. But due to some poor play down the stretch, they are going to have to win their conference tournament to make the big dance.

If any other team outside the top 4 win the conference tournament, here are the projected seeds.

Stanford 10-11

Oregon State 11-12

Utah 12-13

Arizona State 12

Washington State 12-13

Washington 13-14

Cal-14
