Now, just three weeks remain in the regular season. Selection Sunday is March 16th.
Memphis remains the only undefeated team in the country and among the six power conferences, Duke is the only team still undefeated in conference play. Sounds like the top two teams if the season ended today. Here are my ‘educated’ guesses at the top 16 teams in the NCAA tournament. (*Duke and UCLA both play later tonight.)
They are listed by strength within each seed as well.
No. 1: Memphis, Duke, Tennessee, Kansas
No. 2: UCLA, North Carolina, Texas, Georgetown
No. 3: UConn, Xavier, Louisville, Wisconsin
No. 4: Stanford, Purdue, Kansas State, Butler
Next Four: Indiana, Michigan State, Marquette, Drake
