NCAA Tournament Bracket For Kansas, Baylor, San Diego State And Gonzaga
An NCAA Tournament bracket for Kansas, Baylor, San Diego State and Gonzaga was released on Monday morning after an eventful weekend in college basketball.
Every week, ESPN college hoops insider Joe Lunardi releases his new Bracketology showing how he envisions in the looming NCAA Tournament shaking out.
Obviously the biggest upward shift from this past week came courtesy of Kansas, after the Jayhawks narrowly defeated Baylor on the road. With the victory, Bill Self’s squad reclaimed the No. 1 spot in the AP Poll, and put themselves into great position heading into March Madness.
On the flip side, San Diego State proved to be the weekend’s biggest loser. On a Saturday that saw Gonzaga fall to BYU, opening the path for the Aztecs to claim the top spot in the West Region, they instead flopped hard against UNLV.
Now the West will likely belong to the Bulldogs, barring something unforeseen happening, and San Diego’s best shot at claiming a top seed will be in the East Region.
Lunardi ultimately sees the East Region top four shaping up to be: San Diego State, Duke, Seton Hall and Penn State.
He envisions the Midwest Region being: Kansas, Dayton, Louisville and Auburn.
The South Region will feature: Baylor, Maryland, Villanova and Kentucky.
The West Region showcases: Gonzaga, Florida State, Creighton and Oregon.
There will a number of intriguing top-25 showdowns this week, so it will be interesting to see how the brackets change heading into the first week of March.
