Not much changed in terms of the inhabitants of the top four seed lines, but there was shuffling within, due to some big games last week.
Tennessee’s big neutral court win over Gonzaga vaulted the Vols from a 3rd seed to a 2nd seed and brought the Zags just a couple notches down the 1 seed line. Michigan, who has looked like the best team in the country thus far, finally gets the number 1 overall seed after staying undefeated while beginning Big Ten play. Kansas moves from a 2 seed to the second 1 seed, thanks to remaining undefeated despite a daunting strength of schedule.
