There are a few more tourney championship games today before the bracket is announced.

ACC: Duke vs. North Carolina on ESPN
In my opinion, Duke gets a No. 1 seed with a win. Would be close for Carolina if the Tar Heels prevail.

SEC: Kentucky vs. Florida on ABC
Florida won the SEC East and is shooting up mock seeding list. Both teams will be top four seeds in the NCAA tournament.

Atlantic 10
: Dayton vs. Richmond on CBS
Richmond is probably in win or lose. But a Dayton victory would eliminate someone--maybe Colorado or Georgia or Alabama or Boston College or St. Mary's or Virginia Tech.

Big 10: Ohio State vs. Penn State on CBS 2:30 pm Central
Ohio State is your number one overall seed with a win, maybe with a loss too. I've got Penn State in right now but, obviously, a win would clinch it.


NCAA Tournament Seeding: Here are my ‘educated’ guesses at the NCAA tournament seeds.

No. 1 Seeds: Ohio State, Kansas, Pittsburgh, Duke
No. 2 Seeds: Notre Dame, North Carolina, Texas, BYU
No. 3 Seeds: San Diego State, Florida, Connecticut, Purdue
No. 4 Seeds: Wisconsin, Louisville, Syracuse, Kentucky
No. 5 Seeds: St. John’s, Arizona, West Virginia, Texas A&M
No. 6 Seeds: Xavier, Georgetown, Vanderbilt, Kansas State
No. 7 Seeds: Cincinnati, Missouri, Washington, UNLV
No. 8 Seeds: UCLA, Temple, George Mason, Utah State
No. 9 Seeds: Marquette, Florida State, Old Dominon, Tennessee
No. 10 Seeds: Butler, Gonzaga, Richmond, Michigan
No. 11 Seeds: Illinois, Villanova, Colorado, Michigan State
No. 12 Seeds: Memphis, Penn State, Clemson, Va Tech, Alabama, St. Mary’s

Others (in no particular order): Indiana State, Boston U, Belmont, Northern Colorado, UNC Ashville, UC Santa Barbara, Princeton, St. Peter’s, Akron, Hampton, Long Island, Morehead State, Bucknell, Wofford, UT San Antonio, Alabama St, Oakland, and Arkansas-Little Rock. 18 total

Out: Georgia, USC, Boston College, VCU, Missouri St, Harvard, UAB, and UTEP.

Use this as your Sunday open thread for all things college basketball.  We'll be back nearer to the Selection Show (CBS, 5 pm CT) with a thread to talk about the brackets.
