Four teams from the region are projected in to the NCAA basketball tournament. Where are these four teams projected seed wise?
Now less than a week away from Selection Sunday, championship week will be in full effect. What's also in effect will be the rampant speculation as to what teams will be in the field as at-large teams or left out of the field of 68.
Right now in the SBNation bracketology article, Georgetown is seeded No. 3 in the West Region, matched up against No. 14 Denver from the Sun Belt Conference. The Hoyas are the No. 5 seed entering the Big East tournament so they would play a maximum of four games in the conference tournament.
The Virginia Commonwealth Rams are a very interesting case of a bubble team. There are some bracketologists that have them out while some, like SBNation's, have them in as one of the last four teams in, playing a first four game against fellow No. 13 seed Xavier. The Rams could end any and all speculation on their tournament chances Monday night as they play in the Colonial championship game against Drexel at 7 p.m.
The Virginia Cavaliers, despite their recent struggles, still get ranked as a No. 9 seed in the East region, matched up with No. 8 seed Iowa State. The Cavaliers will open their ACC tournament in the quarterfinals against the winner of the first round game between North Carolina State and Boston College.
The Loyola (MD) Greyhounds are also projected as the champions of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) and have a chance to clinch the conference's automatic bid as they play in the championship game Monday night at 7 p.m. against Fairfield.
