News And Notes...

On Feb. 11 the NCAA released selections of the top 16 seeds as of that morning. There were no real surprises that took place. Gonzaga was handed a 1 seed despite having a horrible track record as a high seed. The Big 10 conference was shut out of the process and rightfully so. Their teams just have not done the job out of conference this year.

In consideration of the release of the top 16 teams, Seed Madness will continue the process of releasing a top 16 rankings and seedings list on every Wednesday of the week. (click here) The second one is now available for your viewing. North Carolina has moved into a 1 seed as the top ACC team. Baylor and Florida State - teams with less than stellar tourney records - have fallen. Duke is a team on the rise and Purdue has finally given the Big 10 a team. Conference tourneys kick off next week as we turn our attention to the bubble teams.
