1/15 Bracket

Duke lost at home to Syracuse, but they just edge out Tennessee for the last one seed. For the same reason Tennessee was behind Kansas, they remain behind Duke. They haven’t played as tough of a schedule and they simply don’t have comparable wins. Duke has five wins over top seven seeds, while Tennessee only has two wins over tournament teams. It’s not just the number of Q1/2 wins; it’s also their overall quality.
