According to the latest bracketology update, Arizona has been named as a projected No. 1 seed, replacing Tennessee who held this position for a short time. This change occurred after Arizona won a weekend road sweep against Colorado in blowout fashion, following an overtime win at Utah. The Volunteers’ hot streak was cooled by this victory, resulting in their removal from the top line as a No. 1 seed. Meanwhile, Connecticut, Purdue and Houston retain their positions as regional header teams.
In other changes, Clemson and Virginia are trending upwards, while Wisconsin and Kentucky are moving in the opposite direction. Additionally, there is still a possibility of a six-bid Mountain West Conference.
The “last four in” slots include Mississippi and Utah, while Nebraska and Nevada are also among the teams being considered for this category. The “first four out” includes Gonzaga, Cincinnati, Villanova and Wake Forest. Finally, the “next four out” clubs include Colorado, Seton Hall, St John’s and Providence.
There will be multiple “bubble games” happening over the next week to determine which teams will make it to the NCAA tournament.
