Projecting the Seeds

The NCAA Tournament is about a month away and I absolutely cannot wait. Here's our current projections of the top 4 seeds and conference winners.

1 Seeds
Memphis- Should easily be a 1 seed with the C-USA schedule
UNC- I think they'll prevail, once Lawson is back and to full strength they should just about win out and win the ACC Tourney
UCLA- they will win the Pac 10 tourney which should secure the 1 seed
Tennessee- the SEC is down this year and no one is really posing that much of a threat to them

2 Seeds
Kansas- should be a 1 seed, but Texas or A&M could easily knock them off in the Big XII tourney
Duke- I see them losing to UNC and possibly in the ACC Tourney
Georgetown- still have to play Louisville, Marquette, and UConn but two of them are at home. I see them at least making the Big East Tourney Final
Texas- playing as good as anyone now but tough schedule coming up

3 Seeds
Butler- Could easily win out but being a mid-major and easy schedule won't get them a 2 seed
Indiana- I have a feeling they will finish strong in the Big 10
Washington St.- I see them finishing strong and beating Stanford for a 3 seed
Michigan St.- they may not be ranked very high now but more teams will lose and I see them bouncing back and getting some good wins and finishing well in the conference tourney

4 Seeds
Stanford- still have to play Wazzou, USC, and UCLA
Xavier- Could falter 1 or 2 more times in a tough A10
Wisconsin- Still have to play OSU, MSU, Ill
Connecticut- fairly tough schedule left, plus conference tourney
