Big Ten to dominate NCAA basketball landscape?
Conference could place as many as nine teams in the tournament
Question of the Day
ACC: After Duke, North Carolina and Virginia — a strong top three for any league — there isn’t much of substance. Florida State sneaks into this week’s projection after throttling North Carolina last week. Maryland and N.C. State are off to 2-1 league starts, but didn’t collect standout victories before conference play.
Colonial: This won’t be a three-bid league again this year — and it probably won’t be home to two NCAA teams. The top (VCU and its RPI of 83) isn’t as potent, and the bottom (five teams with RPI figures above 250) is strikingly weaker than usual.
Pac-12: Is it as bad as advertised? The wretched bottom certainly is. The Bay Area schools — Stanford (15-3) and California (15-4) — share the league lead, and Arizona, Oregon and Washington remain talented. But if the tournament started today, the Pac-12 would be mighty grateful it exists in an era of 68-team fields rather than 64-team events.
