Bracketology - 2.26.18

Reviewing the overall body of work for all teams resulted in some major shakeups. Duke has now vaulted to the fourth No. 1 seed while Xavier slides down to a No. 2 seed. North Carolina, another streaking team with a solid top-to-bottom resume, takes the final No. 2 seed. Texas Tech and Auburn are now No. 3 seeds.

Michigan State, despite a 28-3 record and outright Big Ten Championship, sits as a No. 2 seed because the big-time wins just aren't there compared to other teams. MSU could play itself up to a No. 1 seed if it does the following: Win the Big Ten Tournament with victories over Michigan in the semifinals and either Purdue or Ohio State in the finals. Winning the tournament without adding those two neutral-site wins won't quite prop up MSU's resume as much as needed.

Last 4 In: Texas, UCLA, Baylor, Louisville
First 4 Out: Providence, Syracuse, Boise St., Washington
Next 6 Out: Marquette, Georgia, Nebraska, Penn State, Utah, Notre Dame
