NCAA Bracket Projections 2013: Indiana Now The Top Seed In Our 2013 Bracket

by David Hess | February 25th, 2013

We just updated the site to reflect our latest 2013 NCAA bracket projections through games played on February 24th. These bracket projections are based on the algorithmic models at TeamRankings.com, and also account for the specific rules for seeding set forth by the NCAA selection committee.

Notes On Today’s 2013 NCAA Bracket Projections:

  • Miami’s loss to Wake Forest has knocked them out of the overall top seed in our 2013 bracket, which now belongs to Indiana. However, Miami’s overall resume is still strong enough that they remain on the 1-seed line.
  • We’ve got a new 1-seed in this week’s NCAA bracket projections, as Florida has moved into the final spot in place of Duke. Both have 1-seed odds very near 50%, so don’t read too much into which is officially listed there today. Whichever team finishes stronger will likely nab a top seed.
  • California continues to rise, and they’ve seen their odds to make the 2013 NCAA tournament increase from about 60% to about 90% since last week’s bracket projection, due to road wins at Oregon and Oregon State. That’s the second straight week in which the Golden Bears were the biggest gainer NCAA bid odds.
  • Cincinnati’s seed in the latest NCAA projected bracket fell all the way from 8 to 13, after they lost at UConn and got blown out at Notre Dame.
  • The Big East maintains a narrow lead in race for which conference has the most bids in our NCAA bracket projections. The conference has 8, compared to the Big Ten’s 7.

As always, every effort was made to adhere to the committee’s seeding rules for this latest bracket projection, but if you spot something we’ve missed please let us know.

    This site has went with an even FURTHER east coast bias since David Mihm left. Get the ZAGS on the top line already…

    Jason,

    First of all, sorry for the delay in response. We’re certainly not alone on keeping Gonzaga off the 1-seed line here. In fact, 14 of the other 38 bracketologists tracked by the Bracket Project who published brackets yesterday did NOT have the Zags on the 1 line:
