Bracketology 2012: Georgetown Still No. 3 Seed, VCU Automatically Qualifies As No. 12

The guys over at SB Nation have come out with a new Bracketology for the 2012 NCAA tournament that is unique to Tuesday morning, as things are sure to change before the end of the day.

As you can see, Georgetown is still given a No. 3 seed, although that could change considerably with their performance in the Big East tournament this week. The Hoyas are matched up against 14th-seeded Loyola (Md.), winners of the MAAC Tournament, who triumphed 48-44 over Fairfield Monday night to earn an automatic bid to the Big Dance.

VCU just made it into the tournament last night as an automatic qualifier after winning the CAA, and SB Nation has them in the Tournament as a No. 12 seed. If this holds, I guarantee they would be a very popular pick in those ever-dangerous 5/12 match-ups.

The University of Virginia has a tough match-up against Memphis in an 8/9 game. But that's much better than being left off the bubble.
