Final Projection - Storylines to Watch in the Selection Show

I've completed my final projection of this year (seed list, trends).  There are only a few slight changes from my last projection earlier this morning.  These changes reflect some of the main storylines for tonight.

  • Who gets the final one seed?  Connecticut?  Memphis?  Duke?  I ended up moving the Tigers back into the top spot in the West.  The Huskies are the two seed in that region.  I made the decision because Memphis has been a bit more consistent of late, even if it is against inferior opposition.  UConn has been good without Jerome Dyson, but not as great as they had been. 
  • Who are the last couple of teams in?  Mississippi State won the SEC title this afternoon after a horrifically officiated final few minutes.  That eliminated San Diego State on my board.  It's very close between the Aztecs, Creighton (who got the nod in my projection), St. Mary's, Arizona, and Penn State for the final spot.

I'll post a quick review of my performance compared to the actual bracket later this evening.
