News And Notes…02/11/2018 12:45pm CT

NCAA Bracket Preview. The chairman stressed a number of times road wins and road wins against good teams. Virginia holds a 3-1 quadrant 1 road record vs Villanova 1-1 and that is why they are ranked accordingly. Some observations below:

Purdue. The NCAA does and will not care about streaks coming into selections. Purdue has lost twice this week and lost the conference lead yet are still a 1 seed. They hold more quadrant 1 wins over Ohio St. and Michigan St. and more OOC quadrant 1 wins.

Clemson. Complete mystery. They are 1 1/2 games up on Duke and 2 games up on UNC. They compare well in head to head and quadrant 1 wins. Yet the NCAA rates them a 3 seed behind both teams. It says a lot that team name still matters when ranking teams.
