South Bend:

1. Notre Dame (ACC)
16. Southern (SWAC)

8. UCLA
9. DePaul

Spokane:

5. South Carolina
12. Boise State (Mountain West)

4. Gonzaga (West Coast)
13. Lamar (Southland)

Unless something unexpected happens, DePaul’s spot in the field is pretty secure. A pair of road wins to close the regular season would make the Blue Demons locks. The unfortunate part for DePaul is that the Big East won’t provide an opportunity for it to drastically improve its seeding until a potential conference title game against Marquette.

Iowa City:

6. Kentucky
11. Clemson

3. Iowa
14. FGCU (ASUN)

Eugene:

7. Texas
10. Miami (OH) (MAC)

2. Oregon (Pac-12)
15. Idaho (Big Sky)

Oregon could credibly still be on the 1 line here, but fell to a 2 after those back-to-back losses to Oregon State and UCLA. Fine. That’s life in the Pac-12. If the Ducks win out, they’ll have a great shot at a 1 seed, mainly because one of the ACC teams on the top line is guaranteed at least one more loss (they can’t both win the ACC tournament).
