Bracketology Seed List For Tuesday, March 5, 2019

Pretty sure Virginia just hit another three at the Carrier Dome.

Virginia solidified its hold on the No. 1 overall seed by pulling away from the second half on Monday night.

Today’s full bracket post (will go live when it’s published)

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 Monday’s list. Changes noted on the full bracket are relative to last last Tuesday’s full projection.
  • 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. Overall records and NET data reflect games played through Monday, March 4. I pulled the quality win info from WarrenNolan.com’s selection sheets.

Auto Bid Selection Procedures

If a team has already clinched the top seed in its conference tournament, it will be the league rep here until eliminated in said event. For every other league, I’m still using each conference’s tiebreaker procedures to determine auto bid holders.
