12/23 Bracket

Another week, another #1 goes down with Kansas falling at Villanova, 56-55. The loss moves Kansas from first overall to fourth, just barely edging Louisville for the last one seed. Meanwhile, Virginia fell at home to South Carolina. The Cavaliers are still elite defensively, but their offense is among the worst in the power conferences. A protected seed is unlikely, and just making the tournament isn’t a given. They are at a 6 seed right now.
