March 12 Seeding Predictions (2:57 PM EDT update)

OK, I give up for now.  Duke and Kansas have pulled out of the tournament, and with more dominoes sure to fall, I don’t feel much like making a provisional seeding list.  Next update will come when there’s more firm information on the NCAA tournament, whether that’s a full cancellation, a postponement, proceeding as scheduled with some schools not participating…

Teams in bold have clinched bids.  Teams with asterisks have indicated that they will not participate in an NCAA tournament that starts next week.

Updated with 1 seeds of cancelled conference tournaments clinching bids.  Cincinnati, are you patient zero?

Waiting to hear if Creighton gets the Big East auto bid.  I’m assuming they will, although they were losing to St. John’s when the game was called off.

MEAC is last conference standing
