The Last One Seed:
As mentioned on this site, there were three locks for one seeds (Virginia, Villanova, and Xavier), and one wildcard West one seed. That ended up going to Purdue. While it’s understandable to see why they are there, it’s a bit surprising they could lose to both Ohio State and Michigan State and still get a one seed. This isn’t a bad selection from the committee, as that last one seed was completely up for grabs.
Duke as a Two:
What?! What has Duke done to get a two seed over Texas Tech? They have more losses than them and three less G2 wins. Texas Tech also has the best win – at Kansas. This selection shows how important out of conference scheduling is. That seems to be the only reason Duke is on the two line.
