2018 NCAA Tournament Bracket: Latest Projection of the Field of 68

Published by Bleacher Report on Tue, 13 Feb 2018


Despite a home loss to Virginia Tech on Saturday, the Virginia Cavaliers remain the projected No. 1 overall seed for the 2018 men's NCAA tournament. Joining the Cavaliers on the top line are Villanova, Xavier and Purdue.The selection committee's top 16 seeds were the starting point for this projection. There's not much of an argument to be made against any of them and not much has happened since the committee released its list Sunday. Each of the Nos. 1-4 seeds is the same as it was in the top-16 reveal.The other 52 spots are how the field should be seeded based on a combination of nearly a decade of experience with bracketology and clues from what those top 16 seeds tell us about what's important to this year's committee.The biggest takeaway is that Group 1 wins matter. A lot. Kansas and Oklahoma are both seeded higher than a lot of people expected, and Michigan State is a bit lower than most seem to think it should be. And one commonality for those teams is that the "overseeded" ones are loaded with quality wins.With that in mind, you'll find momentarily that quantity of quality wins is effectively a tiebreaker in this projection, particularly along the bubble cutline. Temple, Providence and Washington all have some ugly losses, but we're projecting those teams for spots in the field because they have more Group 1 wins (and better Group 1 wins) than the teams who just missed the cut.As always, we will take a look at the last five teams to make the field, the first five out and a few others on the horizon.After that, we will present each seeded region, includingthe subregional locations in which each pod will play, and some commentary on which teams have moved the most in each region. Then we will defend the rankings of the No. 1 seeds, followed by a summary of the field broken up by conference.Begin Slideshow
