Bracket Banter:

  • Virginia is my number one overall seed despite not even leading its conference at the moment. The Cavaliers have posted series wins over the likes of Florida State, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Miami (Florida), and Duke, and while they only have one sweep since late March, series wins are all that matters in a challenging league like the ACC. They need to finish strong this weekend at Wake Forest before the ACC Tournament.
  • Oregon State has the fourth national seed at the moment, and I must say, that regional is looking pretty spicy right now. I have UC Santa Barbara returning to Corvallis for the second consecutive season as the two seed, and San Diego, who currently sits in fourth place in the WCC, as the three. Sacramento State rounds out the group as the four, facing the Beavers on Friday night for a season rubber match.
  • It came down to Rice and Louisville for the final national seed, and the Owls got the nod. They are finishing strong, having won 12 of their last 16, and got a big two wins at Southern Miss a few weeks ago. Their RPI is also surprisingly high at #6, 12 spots better than Louisville's.
  • For the Pac-12, we have two regional hosts (Oregon State and Washington), one other team locked into the field (Oregon), one bubble "in" (Arizona State), and one on the wrong side of the bubble (USC). SC's RPI is just killing them right now. It currently sits at 78th, and ever since they became a trendy cinderella team a few weeks ago, they've hit a slump. The Trojans have dropped five of their last seven and only have five games left to improve their record.
