Bracketology: Virginia back to the top as March returns

A year ago, the Virginia Cavaliers were holding the same position - sitting atop the college basketball world as king’s of Bracketology. Today, as March awaits, UVA is back, leading the latest Field of 68.

Duke’s seed status will be heavily debated in the Selection Committee room if questions about Zion Williamson’s availability remain unanswered over the next two weeks. When Selection Sunday arrives, the Committee will have to evaluate the Blue Devils based upon the team anticipated to take the floor in the NCAA tournament. Given that Williamson’s injury status is day-to-day, we’re working under the assumption that he will, in fact, return at some point. Time will tell.

The race for No. 1 seeds is far from over. Kentucky and Tennessee play again this weekend. Michigan State and Michigan meet again. Duke has another matchup with North Carolina.

And just for fun, March begins tomorrow.
