Kentucky holding steady as a 2-seed in the latest Bracketology

So far, all signs point to Kentucky in Indianapolis
So far, all signs point to Kentucky in Indianapolis

Selection Sunday is 37 days away, which means Joe Lunardi is kicking things into another gear. ESPN’s Bracketologist released a new version of his predictions for the NCAA Tournament, and keeps Kentucky as the 2-seed in the South Region, playing its opening games in Indianapolis:

Still hard for me to believe UCLA would be a four-seed, but I’m fine with this. Lunardi’s #1-seeds? Villanova (East), Kansas (Midwest), Gonzaga (West), and Baylor (South). As of now, he thinks only four SEC teams will get in: Kentucky (2), Florida (5), South Carolina (6), and Arkansas (9).

Over at CBS Sports, Jerry Palm thinks Kentucky will be a three-seed in the East Region (opening games in Milwaukee), while USA Today’s Shelby Mast has Kentucky as a three-seed in the South (opening games in Indy).

    No, I’m not seeing that, either, Tyler. No way UCLA is a four.

    I watched Baylor a little last night, and they impressed me even in defeat. Long and tough. Fundamentally sound on both ends of the floor. A stingy zone that gave KU trouble at times. Good spacing and passing on offense, and they shoot the three pretty well.

      I’ve been down on Baylor all year; but, they did look good last night, and almost pulled it off.

    Purdue would be a very bad matchup for us

    While there is still a ton of season left, it does look potentially tough assuming UK ends up in the 2/3 line. It seems with a few exceptions that there is a big discrepancy between the top 12 or so teams in the country and the next line down, meaning essentially 1/2/3 seeds in each region are really tough, and then there is a big drop-off at the 4/5 mostly. So the four lucky teams that draw 1’s will be a much better position, and a 2/3 is likely look at a really difficult sweet 16 matchup.

    Time will tell, and at this point all UK can do is hopefully keep winning.

      True, nor Louisville or Indiana…of course, the Hoosiers might not make it.
      UCLA in the South Region is ridiculous,
      why doesn’t this guy just stop?

    This team needs some luck to go deep in tourny this year no matter what seed they get

    Right now a 3 seed is warranted…
