Marcus Jackson: No shockers among top seeds

Marcus Jackson: No shockers among top seeds

EAST
1. Syracuse
2. Villanova
3. Michigan
— If the Wolverines, who have the inside track at the Big Ten title, can remain hot and close the deal, there’s little doubt John Beilein’s squad can move up a line to a No. 2 seed.
4. Virginia

MIDWEST
1. Wichita State
2. Kansas
3. Wisconsin
4. Michigan State
— The injuries are really taking a toll on the Spartans, who can’t seem to sustain any momentum with Branden Dawson out and Keith Appling ailing. A healthy MSU, though, is a legitimate Final Four threat regardless of seed.

SOUTH
1. Florida
— As it stands now, the Gators would be the No. 1 overall seed, which is good news for them. The last time they had the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament was 2007, when they won the national title.
2. Duke
3. Cincinnati
4. Saint Louis

WEST
1. Arizona
2. Creighton
— If not for losses to Providence and St. John’s earlier this season, National Player of the Year front-runner Doug McDermott and the Blue Jays might have been legitimate candidates to earn a No. 1 seed.
3. San Diego State
4. Iowa State
