  • Bracketology NCAA Tournament Selection Committee Says Virginia Is Number 1

The Boilermakers were given the West's No. 1 seed.

So while Virginia Tech's away win vs. Virginia was an RPI top-50 win previous year, it is now a Quadrant 1 win.

The Virginia men's basketball team may have used up some of its margin for error with a loss Saturday, but the people who matter perceive the Cavaliers as the team to beat in the NCAA Tournament next month. Despite Michigan State's two top-five wins, it has only a 3-2 record in its "Quadrant 1" games, against top-30 teams at home, top-50 teams at neutral sites and top-75 teams on the road.

Lakers acquire Isaiah Thomas from Cavs
On Thursday morning, guards Isaiah Thomas , Dwayne Wade and Derrick Rose and forward Jae Crowder were members of the Cavaliers . Getting a change of scenery might be a good thing for Thomas , as he never seemed to find any groove with the Cavaliers .

This is the second year the committee has done in-season seeds. "What I can say, without any doubt, is there are several very good teams, which could lead to a wide-open tournament". That does not change much, if at all, because it's a very big, top-tier win regardless of system. "It wouldn't be surprising to see different results this time". Per TeamRankings, it has a 100 percent chance to make the NCAA Tournament; a 34.6 percent chance to earn a 2-seed (and 18.4 percent chance to earn a top seed); a 10.7 percent chance of making the Final Four and a 1.7 percent chance to win the national championship.
