Bracketology Seed List For Sunday, February 24, 2019

This article first appeared here https://www.bloggingthebracket.com/2019/2/24/18233145/bracketology-college-basketball-seed-list-duke-virginia-gonzaga-kentucky

There’s a new No. 1 seed after Saturday’s busy lineup. We also have a couple mid-major leagues drop from the multi-bid ranks.

Notes:

  • Auto bid holders in this section are noted by the conference names in parentheses.
  • Arrows indicate movement up or down the seed list (down to the spot on the seed list). This is relative to Friday’s SB Nation post.
  • New entrants are marked with an asterisk.
  • For at-large candidates only, the numbers in parentheses after the team’s name are as follows: record vs. D1 opposition/record in Group 1 and Group 2 games/record in Group 1 games only. This information reflects NET data as of Sunday, Feb. 24. I pulled the quality win info from WarrenNolan.com’s selection sheets.

No. 1 Seeds

(1) Duke Blue Devils (ACC) (24-3/15/8) – WASHINGTON, D.C. – Columbia 1
(2) Virginia Cavaliers (24-2/14/9) – LOUISVILLE – Columbus 1
(↑3) Gonzaga Bulldogs (WCC) (27-2/11/4) – ANAHEIM – Salt Lake City 1
(↑4) Kentucky Wildcats (23-4/14/9) – KANSAS CITY – Columbus 2

With Tennessee having lost two of three, the Vols drop down to the two line, with Kentucky rising up to the fourth spot overall after their resounding 27-point win over Auburn—their third victory in succession.

No. 2 Seeds

(↑5) Michigan Wolverines (Big Ten) (24-3/15/7) – LOUISVILLE – Des Moines 1
(6) North Carolina Tar Heels (22-5/12/7) – KANSAS CITY – Columbia 2
(↓7) Tennessee Volunteers (23-3/10/5) – WASHINGTON, D.C. – Jacksonville 1
(8) Michigan State Spartans (22-5/13/10) – ANAHEIM – Des Moines 2

Michigan jumps into the top spot on line No. 2, but will they stay there? This afternoon, the Wolverines host Michigan State (2:30 p.m. ET, CBS) in the first of two highly-anticipated late season matchups.

No. 3 Seeds

(↑9) Houston Cougars (American) (26-1/14/4) – ANAHEIM – Tulsa 1
(↑10) LSU Tigers (SEC) (22-5/14/7) – WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tulsa 2
(11) Marquette Golden Eagles (Big East) (23-4/13/8) – LOUISVILLE – Hartford 1
(↓12) Kansas Jayhawks (20-7/13/9) – KANSAS CITY – Salt Lake City 2

Houston now heads up the No. 3 seed line, thanks in part to the beating Kansas suffered in Lubbock last night. LSU, meanwhile, jumps up to from the four line.

With four Big Ten teams and trios of ACC, Big 12, and SEC squads, I had to do some major shuffling of seed lines three and four to get the four regions relatively balanced.

No. 4 Seeds

(↓13) Purdue Boilermakers (20-7/14/8) – KANSAS CITY – Jacksonville 2
(14) Kansas State Wildcats (Big 12) (21-6/10/6) – LOUISVILLE – Hartford 2
(↑15) Wisconsin Badgers (19-8/11/7) – WASHINGTON, D.C. – San José 1
(↑16) Texas Tech Red Raiders (22-5/12/5) – ANAHEIM – San José 2

Texas Tech returns to the top 16 following its demolition of Kansas, while Purdue drops following an unconvincing performance at Nebraska. The Boilermakers have won their last two road games by a total of five points—with both victories coming against teams that have struggled mightily in Big Ten play.

No. 5 Seeds

(↓17) Florida State Seminoles (21-6/10/5)
(↓18) Maryland Terrapins (21-7/12/6)
(↓19) Nevada Wolf Pack (MW) (25-2/8/0)
(↑20) Iowa Hawkeyes (21-6/11/4)

Even though Iowa needed OT to get past Indiana on Friday night, the Hawkeyes replace Iowa State on the five line following the Cyclones’ second loss of the season to TCU.

No. 6 Seeds

(↑21) Mississippi State Bulldogs (20-7/12/7)
(↑22) Virginia Tech Hokies (21-6/9/3)
(23) Cincinnati Bearcats (22-4/7/4)
(↓24) Iowa State Cyclones (19-8/8/5)

No. 7 Seeds

(25) Washington Huskies (Pac-12) (22-5/6/1)
(26) Villanova Wildcats (20-7/12/3)
(↑27) Buffalo Bulls (MAC) (23-3/6/2)
(↑28) Wofford Terriers (SoCon) (21-4/7/3)

With Bowling Green losing to the Ohio on Friday, Buffalo is again the lone MAC team in the field.

No. 8 Seeds

(↓29) Baylor Bears (18-9/11/4)
(↓30) Louisville Cardinals (18-10/8/4)
(↓31) Syracuse Orange (18-9/8/3)
(↑32) St. John’s Red Storm (20-8/10/6)

St. John’s earned a bit of breathing room with a home victory over Seton Hall, while Syracuse’s loss to Duke didn’t hurt the Orange’s prospects all that much. Louisville, however, has slid from a possible protected seed to the middle of the bracket thanks to four losses in their last five.

No. 9 Seeds

(↑33) Mississippi Rebels (19-8/7/4)
(↓34) Auburn Tigers (17-9/9/2)
(↑35) VCU Rams (A 10) (21-6/5/3)
(↑36) Oklahoma Sooners (17-10/10/3)

Auburn’s blowout loss at Kentucky cost it some positioning, while VCU’s continued run of excellence in a poor Atlantic 10 and Oklahoma’s well-earned split of its season series with Texas provided both a nice seeding boost.

No. 10 Seeds

(↓37) Texas Longhorns (15-12/8/4)
(↑38) Florida Gators (16-11/7/2)
(↓39) Ohio State Buckeyes (17-10/7/4)
(↑40) TCU Horned Frogs (18-9/7/2)

Speaking of the Longhorns, Kerwin Roach II’s indefinite suspension for a violation of team rules will be a storyline to watch for the next few weeks. While Texas rallied to make it a game in Norman yesterday, the ‘Horns didn’t look all that great without their leading scorer. Florida, meanwhile, avoided disaster at home against Missouri yesterday. On the other hand, Ohio State was swept by Maryland.

By completing a season sweep of Iowa State, TCU really improved its positioning and ranks among Saturday’s biggest bubble winners.

No. 11 Seeds

(↑41) Lipscomb Bisons (ASUN) (19-6/3/2)
(42) Arizona State Sun Devils (18-8/8/4)
(↓43) Minnesota Golden Gophers (17-10/8/3)
(↑44) N.C. State Wolfpack (18-8/7/1)

Lipscomb is now the lone Atlantic Sun team in the field, as Liberty fell at North Florida. There’s a good chance the NET will play a role in breaking a tie at the top of the conference, considering how the conference used RPI in the past.

Sunday is going to be a crucial day for the 11 and 12 seed group, as UCF (SMU, 12 p.m. ET, CBSSN), Minnesota (at Rutgers, 6:30 p.m. ET, BTN), N.C. State (Wake Forest, 6 p.m. ET, ESPNU), and Arizona State (California, 6 p.m. ET, Pac-12 Network) are all in action.

No. 12 Seeds

(45) UCF Knights (19-5/6/0)
(↓46 – First Four) Seton Hall Pirates (16-11/10/3)
(47- First Four) Alabama Crimson Tide (16-11/9/2)
(48) Belmont Bruins (OVC) (22-4/5/2)
(*49 – First Four) Temple Owls (20-7/7/2)
(↓50 – First Four) Utah State Aggies (21-6/3/1)

Alabama returns after beating Vanderbilt handily, though the failings of others is more responsible for Crimson Tide’s return. Temple is also back, thanks to a home win over Tulsa Golden Hurricanes that avenged their worst loss of conference play. Seton Hall dug its hole just a bit deeper with its second loss of the week. Utah State hangs in, with an anticipated visit from Nevada on tap next Saturday.

First Four Out (NIT No. 1 Seeds)

(↑69) Butler Bulldogs (15-12/7/2)
(↑70) Clemson Tigers (16-11/4/1)
(↑71) Georgetown Hoyas (16-11/7/3)
(↑72) Furman Paladins (19-6/4/1)

Next Five Out

(↑73) Saint Mary’s Gaels (19-10/3/1)
(↑74) Dayton Flyers (18-9/2/2)
(↑75) Davidson Wildcats (19-7/4/0)
(↓76) Liberty Flames (20-6/2/1)
(↓77) Murray State Racers (21-4/1/0)

It was another rough day for teams on the outside looking in, something you probably could have surmised based on the presence of so many mid-majors and the fact that Georgetown and Furman both moved up slightly after losses. It’s just an exceptionally thin bubble at this point.

No. 13 Seeds

(↓51) New Mexico State Aggies (WAC)
(↓52) Yale Bulldogs (Ivy)
(53) Old Dominion Monarchs (C-USA)
(54) Vermont Catamounts (America East)

No. 14 Seeds

(↓55) Hofstra Pride (CAA)
(↑56) South Dakota State Jackrabbits (Summit)
(↑57) UC Irvine Anteaters (Big West)
(↓58) Radford Highlanders (Big South)

No. 15 Seeds

(59) Montana Grizzlies (Big Sky)
(*60) Texas State Bobcats (Sun Belt)
(↓61) Loyola Chicago Ramblers (MVC)
(*62) Wright State Raiders (Horizon)

No. 16 Seeds

(63) Bucknell Bison (Patriot)
(64) Sam Houston State Bearkats (Southland)
(65 – First Four) Prairie View A&M Panthers (SWAC)
(66 – First Four) Norfolk State Spartans (MEAC)
(67 – First Four) St. Francis (Pa.) Red Flash (NEC)
(68 – First Four) Canisius Golden Griffins (MAAC)

On rebounding

reb

We live at a time of analytical lots that is, yet you see rebound margin amounts flung up during that telecast or this in 2019. That makes me grit my teeth on screen, of course in the behaviours that are blatant, and, well, I m correct to do so. Rebound margin is in fact meaningless, an ersatz and mislabeled tribute paid to groups which change shots yet refuse to go for steals and/or fees (with all the above, rather, transpiring at a quick pace).

To the next I shall confess in defense of my brethren and sistren. I’ve been mulling how peculiar rebounds are for some time now, and (this may say more about me than about rebounding) I’m still not sure I’ve found solid ground with this specific subject.

Here’s what I believe I think….

Leave it s enduring and endearing idiosyncrasies to overturn axioms regarding sample size.

Rebound percentages in the college game are like the RPI. They may be fine, and they ll be congruent with present events. However, you can t trust them sight unseen, so use something where you will need to pop the hood up and inspect each and every time to the connections?

At this writing, Kentucky’s fourth in the nation in rebound percentage, and third at the SEC in conference play. Same for Duke, No. 5 nationally and No. 3 in its summit. Wake Forest’s been a standard deviation at getting rebounds.

Defensive rebound rates can interpret somewhat better from whole-season to summit (cf. Maryland, Colorado, and Michigan), but even here it is possible to ’t just assume that you ’re hitting statistical bedrock each moment. Require Kansas State, No. 17 nationally in defensive rebound percent, over a hundred spots higher than its closest in-conference competitor (Oklahoma, No. 132).

This isn ’ t a thing that is sample-size, although these numbers are in movement, obviously. It s one more more of a basketball thing, or, better still of a game.  There are just a few box score amounts that change as much as possible proportions due to how coaches decide to change their appearance for conference 33, to non-conference scheduling philosophies or.

There’s a brand new breed of inverse-Michigan rebounding teams, and it looks weird
For as long as basketball was played, there have been but that do well on the glass. Consider John Beilein when you think about the style. He’s always preferred to create his groups ’ shots via a low-low turnover rate while maintaining offensive rebounds rare although not self-defeatingly Wyoming-scarce (see below). We see this sort of team all the time, and one good thing that came with throwing about offensive and defensive rebound percentages instead of only “rebounds” as a counting stat is that we have the capability to provide this sort of team its thanks.

But in 2019, we re seeing and it’s extremely strange. Would you want to be terrible although good at rebounding at defensive?

Standard deviations above/below conference means
Conference games only

OR%     DR%     IMF

These are the IMF amounts we’ve seen in play in the previous five years. Purdue 2019 isn't far behind.

1 difficulty with defensive as a basketball metric that is descriptive, at least in discussions of who will win, is upon being in the presence of its version that is weak that coaches act. Michigan State to date has been awful at defensive however, with the exceptions of Fran McCaffery and Matt Painter, there'll be. The culture of training at the college level says rebounding’s not actually training since it’s not and can't be planned in the exact same hermetically sealed fashion a play call is.

Allen Edwards is running a very interesting experiment
Few groups in recent memory are more steadfast in their refusal of offensive rebounds than Wyoming this year, which at this writing is pulling down only 14.9 percent of its own missed shots in Mountain West play. You re at the performance horizon, As soon as you get down to 15 percent.

Bear in mind the most dedicated misanthropist can not get to zero. There will be “group boards in which the opponent mishandles a rebound and the ball goes out of bounds.

A 14.9 percent offensive rebound rate puts Wyoming under 13 individual Division I gamers , from Tyrique Jones into Mark Vital, all of whom are far more likely to rebound a teammate’s miss than are five Cowboys on the ground working together.

This is a great time to check group, since its voodoo that is zero-second-chances was used by it. Jordan Naughton came off the bench and hauled in three boards. That night, he was made to run the stadium steps.

In Mountain West play, the Cowboys have been utterly, gloriously and wonderfully normal concerning accuracy from the field (50.2 eFG percent ), which makes them a near-ideal test instance. It turns out that with this amount of shooting, no team scored anywhere near so points in 13 years of play.

Wyoming now

Possessions where one shot is tried and where there isn't any turnover enjoy an heuristic privilege that is overwhelming both in the finest analysis and in coaches ’ advance preparation in film breakdowns. Although you did nothing but look at picture of Wyoming’s possessions that are turnover-less up to the stage where the shooter is a miss or a create, you'd see zero that’s from the ordinary. I m weird, but, from my seat, Edwards is currently doing things that are interesting, if we'll listen.
