The Field of 65 (as of February 25)

Selection Sunday is only three weeks away. A lot of teams have work left to do. By no means are JJ and I experts, but we did our field of 65.

JJ’s field is under his brainwork.

ONE seeds

tennessee.gif– Beat Memphis on road. #1 in RPI and #2 in SOS

memphis.gif – loss might help them. 6-1 vs. RPI top 50.

texas.gif – No team can say they have wins over Tennessee, Kansas and UCLA

duke.gif – Five wins vs. RPI top 50.

TWO seeds

ucla.gif – Loss against Washington hurts chances at one seed

unc.gif – Need a healthy Lawson to push for one seed

kansas.gif – Could be best team in the nation just not playing well

louisville.gif– Playing the best ball in the Big East.

Three seeds

indiana.gif – In my mind, still the best team in the Big Ten.

xavier.gif – 6-1 against top 50. RPI 6 SOS 18

purdue.gif– 9-1 in last 10 games.

wisconsin.gif – Purdue only team to ruin conference slate

drake.gif – Love the win at Butler

FIVE seeds

michigan-state.gif– Two losses to Iowa and Penn State really hurt

butler.gifDon’t like the SOS (143)

marquette.gif – Good CPU numbers (RPI 17 SOS 19), but 5 losses to teams inside RPI 50 is troubling

SIX seeds
