And the No. 1 seeds are ... Big Ten heavy
1. Syracuse (ACC)
2. Villanova (Big East)
3. Florida (SEC)
4. Memphis (American)
— After not having a single Top 25 win under Josh Pastner entering the season, the Tigers have two this year, including a road win at Louisville last week.
Seeding is believing
Each week until Selection Sunday, college basketball writer Marcus Jackson will give us his top four seeds for each region. Here’s the latest look:
1. Michigan State (Big Ten)
— Spartans remain a prime candidate for a No. 1 seed while playing at times without Gary Harris and Adreian Payne, both of whom have dealt with injuries.
2. Iowa State (Big 12)
3. Ohio State (Big Ten)
4. Kansas (Big 12)
1. Wisconsin (Big Ten)
2. Baylor (Big 12)
3. Iowa (Big Ten)
— If the Hawkeyes could have held on last week at Wisconsin ahead of the win at Ohio State, they might have been a lock for one of the No. 2 seeds.
4. Kentucky (SEC)
1. Arizona (Pac-12)
2. San Diego State (Mountain West)
— The Aztecs are the only team in the country with three wins against Top 25 teams this season away from their home gym.
3. Wichita State (Missouri Valley)
4. Oklahoma State (Big 12)
