Bracketology: Purdue jumps over Kansas for top seed, Alabama No. 2 overall in NCAA Tournament projection


Following Kansas State's overtime win Tuesday over in-state rival Kansas, we have a new overall No. 1 seed. Purdue is now the top overall seed in the NCAA Tournament bracket projection. The Boilermakers have seven Quadrant 1 wins, the most of any team. The Jayhawks also have seven Quad 1 wins and that is a big reason why Kansas is still on the top line of the bracket as the No. 4 overall seed. Alabama is now No. 2 overall, while Houston remains No. 3. The Crimson Tide have one more loss than the Cougars, but have played a significantly better schedule and are the only team to beat them, having done so at Houston. Kansas State jumps up to the top No. 2 seed on the strength of that win over Kansas. The head-to-head result with Kansas – a win in overtime at home – is not enough to override the strength of the Jayhawks' overall resume.
