Replanting seeds

There's a nice lull between Thursday night and Saturday afternoon when the elite teams in college basketball don't play. This is a good time to update the tournament seed predictions I made last week. Iowa replaces Michigan, which means that the Big Ten and Big East still claim 9 of the 16 spots. (Expect that number to decrease as the clusters of teams atop the conferences start to thin out.)

Washington Regional
1. Connecticut
2. Texas
3. Iowa
4. Ohio State

Atlanta Regional
1. Memphis
3. Georgetown
4. Pittsburgh

Minneapolis Regional
1. Duke
2. Michigan State
3. Tennessee
4. West Virginia

Oakland Regional
1. Villanova
2. Gonzaga
3. Illinois
4. George Washington
