With Selection Sunday upon us, there is a good idea of almost the entire field of 68. There could be some jostling, depending on the outcome of title games set for Sunday, but let's take one final look at what bracket experts nationally believe is in store for Maryland in the tournament.
Lunardi has Maryland as a No. 4-seed playing Iona in the first round out in Spokane as part of the East Regional. That would set them up to play the winner of the 5-12 game between Iowa State and and South Dakota State. Despite the location, that would be a reasonably favorable path for the Terps.
The No. 1 in the region is North Carolina. The No. 2 seed is Villanova. The No. 3 seed is West Virginia. There will be quality teams in every region and WVU would be a nightmare of a matchup, but if I were Maryland this wouldn't be a bad draw to sign up for.
Palm also has Maryland as a No. 4 seed in Spokane, expect he has them playing Hawaii in the first round. A win there would match them up against the 5-12 winner of Cal and Yale. North Carolina and Villanova are also No. 1 and No. 2 in this East Regional.
Ommen has the Terps as a No. 5 seed in Denver playing Stony Brook. If they win, they would face the 4-13 winner between Texas A&M and Iona. You know where Mark Turgeon used to coach? Right, Texas A&M.
North Carolina is the No. 1 seed in that region. West Virginia is No. 2. Xavier is No. 3.
USA TODAY projects Maryland in the South Region, facing trendy upset pick Arkansas Little Rock in the 5-12 game in Oklahoma City. The winner of that would face the winner of the 4-13 game between Kentucky and Stephen F. Austin. The Sweet 16 and Elite 8 would be in Louisville.
Virginia is the No. 1 seed in the region. Oklahoma is No. 2. Xavier is No. 3.
