Waco:

1. Baylor (Big 12)
16. New Mexico State (WAC)

8. UCLA
9. Indiana

College Station:

5. Florida State
12. Quinnipiac (MAAC)

4. Texas A&M
13. Penn (Ivy)

Is there a streakier team out there than UCLA? The Bruins punted an opportunity at some great non-conference wins with four straight losses early. Then they won six in a row. Then they lost four more. Then they won six more. With that, UCLA earned the 4 seed in the Pac-12 Tournament and will likely face Arizona State in the quarterfinals. That’s another opportunity for a quality win.

Raleigh:

6. Kentucky
11. James Madison (CAA)

3. NC State
14. UT Arlington (Sun Belt)

Iowa City:

7. Arizona State
10. West Virginia

2. Iowa (Big Ten)
15. VCU (Atlantic 10)

Personally, I would have flipped Iowa and NC State, and that’s no disrespect to the Hawkeyes. The Wolfpack just have a better record, a better RPI, no losses as bad as Iowa’s worst four, and a better “best win.” OK now that I think about it, maybe this is a little strange.
