Projected seeding is based on team ratings from TheRankerPit.com.
A few noteworthy difference with consensus projections from the Bracketology community (found at bracketmatrix.com)
- Kansas and Baylor are both consensus 1-seeds. Ratings from TheRankerPit.com indicate Kansas and Baylor may be a bit overrated.
- I have Wichita State as a 2-seed – way higher than the consensus 10-seed. Wichita State’s rating is probably a bit inflated from all of the large scoring margins accomplished against their relatively weak conference competition.
- Most bracketologists are just now taking Indiana out of their projection. Indiana’s been out for a long time for me
- Maryland and Arkansas have moved in, while Illinois State and Tennessee have moved out.
