On Saturday the NCAA released their top 16 college basketball teams. The list as it compares to Saturday’s BoW bracket:
|NCAA Seed||Team||BoW Seed|
|Seed||BoW Top 16|
No discrepancies are larger than two seed lines, and 12 teams reside in both top 16 lists. The same 4 teams are one seeds in each bracket. The most glaring omission is that the Big Ten is currently shut out of the top 16 by the NCAA. It’s also noteworthy that Gonzaga is the 4th 1 seed, suggesting the NCAA is looking for a reason to drop them from the top line. They likely need to remain undefeated to hold onto a 1 seed.
