George Mason owns the nation's longest winning streak, and because of that, its seed is relatively high in the latest NCAA Tournament bracketology projections. The Patriots received a No. 7 seed in the latest SB Nation NCAA Tournament bracketology earlier Tuesday, and would play against No. 10 seed Tennessee in the East region. This places George Mason on the same seeding line as UCLA, Florida State and Texas A&M.
The Patriots were able to rise, but fellow local team Georgetown is falling. The injury to point guard Chris Wright, coupled with losses to Cincinnati and Syracuse last week, dropped the Hoyas to a No. 4 seed in the latest SB Nation projection. Georgetown is matched up against No. 13 Princeton, the projected Ivy League champion. This places the Hoyas on the same seeding line as North Carolina, Wisconsin and fellow Big East school St. John's.
Other local-ish teams in the 68-team projection include Virginia Tech (No. 10 seed), Richmond (No. 12 seed, in a play-in game) and Old Dominion (No. 9 seed). Virginia Commonwealth was listed among the "Next Four Out," while Maryland was merely on the "Others Considered" list.
