Kansas, Pitt, Oklahoma, UConn fell, teams that had their shot at #1 damaged or gone. Assuming UNC and Memphis (despite the objections) are entrenched in the #1 seeds, who gets them now?

Pitt will still get one. UNC (lose or not this week), Pitt, Louisville, Memphis is my guess. Uconn will get the shaft.

Memphis is still a 2 seed in my eyes. If Duke wins the ACC tourney, they're a number 1. Louisville is a number 1, UConn is still a number 1 and maybe still Pitt

As long as Memphis plays in Conference USA.... they can't be a #1 seed. Sorry but they beat up on cupcakes all season.

My #1 seeds are UNC, Pitt, Louisville, Uconn

NO WAY with 6 losses can Duke be a #1 seed even if they win the ACC. They're a solid 2 or 3.

Although it is highly unlikely, Duke could be a #1 if the won the ACC. That would most likely mean they would have to beat BC, Wake, UNC. Couple that with their recent streak of 5-1 down the stretch with only loss coming at Carolina. The committee always takes into account how the teams are over there last 10 games.

Also,Duke has the 2nd strongest RPI or strength of schedule, only behind Pitt. Duke has more quality wins than Michigan State and Louisville along with a much tougher schedule. As for Memphis, they shouldnt even be inthe discussion. Their only quality win was against Gonzaga. They were 1-3 out of conference.

Again, a long shot, but if Duke were to win the ACC, they have a very strong case, even with 6 losses.

if UConn is a #1, Pitt would HAVE to be one. They did beat UConn twice, WHILE they was the #1 seed both times. I would give Pitt priority over UCONN for the #1 seed based on those 2 victories and same record.

Agree with that Pitt is a better team then Uconn.

Thanks to Pitt and UConn.....my theory of Louisville not being a #1 is done...


...though I still think they AREN'T a #1 seed (but will be)

And fug, if Duke wins the ACC Tourney...how could they not be a #1?

i do not want ANY conference to ever have 3 teams as #1 seeds....all this talk about the big east getting 3 #1's is sickening to me. I say odd team out is UCONN. don't reward a 3rd place team in a conference when you still have Michigan St., Memphis, and *gulp* Dook playing strong and still can win their respective tournament (although I'm hoping Dook never gets that chance to win the ACC :D)

Right now the #1's are UNC, PITT, Lville, Mst.
Duke is a 2 seed in the midwest right now. BC a 9 seed, Maryland an 11 seed, Clemson a 7th seed, Wake is a 3rd seed, Flst is a 5th seed.
Biggest movers so far is Syracuse they are up to a 4th seed.

This is the latest Projection from Sportsline.
