BRACKET UPDATE: Today’s Latest Projections

The latest bracket projections from CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm are very similar to ESPN’s Joe Lunardi’s. Both have Kentucky as the one seed in the South (Louisville regional games), with Duke as the two seed.

The one seeds in Jerry Palm’s prediction:

  • Virginia
  • North Carolina
  • Gonzaga
  • Kentucky

Here’s the sixteen seeds in Jerry Palm’s South region:

  1. Kentucky
  2. Duke
  3. Michigan
  4. Kansas State
  5. Maryland
  6. Cincinatti
  7. Iowa
  8. Iowa State
  9. Syracuse
  10. Seton Hall
  11. St. John
  12. Creighton/ Furman
  13. Northeastern
  14. Harvard
  15. Colgate
  16. Sam Houston State

Joe Lunardi’s projections for the South region are very similar:

  1. Kentucky
  2. Duke
  3. Michigan
  4. Kansas State
  5. Virginia Tech
  6. Mississippi State
  7. Iowa State
  8. VCU
  9. Iowa
  10. Seton Hall
  11. NC State/Temple
  12. Saint Mary’s
  13. Vermont
  14. Old Dominion
  15. Gardner-Webb
  16. Sam Houston State

Lunardi’s one seeds are exactly the same:

  • Virginia
  • North Carolina
  • Gonzaga
  • Kentucky

With both of these guys projecting very similar seeding, I think it would take an upset in the conference tournaments to change much.
