In two weeks, we’ll be poring over the actual NCAA Tournament bracket. Until then, Bracketology will have to do.
Joe Lunardi’s latest projections have Kentucky as the three-seed in the West Region, playing opening round games in St. Louis. Gonzaga is the one-seed, Florida State the two-seed.
Lunardi updates his seed list daily, and as of last night, Kentucky is his top three-seed, meaning a two-seed could be within reach if everything goes our way. His current two seeds are Florida State (West), Dayton (East), Maryland (South), and Seton Hall (Midwest). The ones are Gonzaga (West), San Diego State (East), Baylor (South), and Kansas (Midwest).
Meanwhile, over at BracketWag.com, Shelby Mast also has Kentucky as a three-seed in the West Region, but playing its opening round games in Cleveland.
Kentucky is the lowest three-seed in Mast’s projections behind Florida State, Duke, and Villanova. His twos are Dayton, Seton Hall, Maryland, and Creighton, and ones Kansas, Baylor, Gonzaga, and San Diego State.
Selection Sunday can’t come soon enough.
