First March Madness Bracket Prediction of 2012 Is Up!

by Bracket Update | February 9th, 2012

The first NCAA tournament bracket projection of the 2011-12 season has been posted. Since this is the first NCAA tournament bracket of the year, there may be a few kinks, and the position of teams will surely change through the year.

Three of the four #1 seeds are clear — Syracuse, Kentucky, and Ohio State have shown themselves to be a cut above the rest, and have¬†amassed¬†impressive resumes. Competition for the last #1 seed is fierce, with the winner of the Big 12 or ACC will likely snag it. At this point, it’s a very close call, but Missouri has the slight edge because they have fewer losses than Duke or Kansas.

Baylor may be out of the running for a #1 seed now, given that they’ve been handled easily by Kansas twice. Unless they win the Big 12 Tournament and return the favor, it’s difficult to imagine the Bears grabbing a #1 seed over the Jayhawks.

The same may be true of North Carolina, given their home loss to Duke. If they don’t win on the road in Cameron, it’ll be tough for them to leapfrog the Blue Devils for a #1 seed.

    Thanks for the heads up. I switched the #9 seeds Harvard and Kansas State in order to fix this problem.
