Joe Lunardi has dropped Kentucky a seed line in his latest bracket protection.
A loss on the road to the SEC’s top team that could potentially be a two-seed shouldn’t hurt Kentucky’s stock too much. Losing four straight games might have more to do with the dip to a nine-seed in today’s bracket.
When Kentucky moved down, Louisville moved up to an eight. Lunardi told Tom Leach earlier this week UK needs to win three more regular season games to feel comfortable heading into the postseason. See his entire bracket here.
If you’re tired of hearing just from Lunardi, I have a new solution that could tickle your fancy. It’s called the Bracket Matrix. Numbers nerds at The Bracket Project combine every possible bracket projection (more than 100) to paint the clearest picture of where each team currently stands. As of 8:45 last night, Kentucky’s average seed is 6.38. Not too shabby.
