March Madness is right around the corner. Bracketology expert Joe Lunardi released another big-time tournament seeding prediction ahead of a massive Thursday night of college hoops.
Kansas is seemingly locked into the overall No. 1 seed even if the Jayhawks lose tonight against TCU, according to Lunardi. Baylor is still the projected second No. 1 seed followed by Gonzaga and San Diego State.
Dayton and Seton Hall, the top-two No. 2 seeds, are each still in play for a No. 1 seed. Both the Flyers and Pirates have critical contests on Thursday night – a loss by either squad would surely eliminate the possibility of earning a No. 1 seed.
In other news, Duke – which had two ugly losses last week – is now a three-seed after being in contention to a one-seed prior to last week. The Kentucky Wildcats also feel to a No. 3 seed after losing to Tennessee on Tuesday night. Here’s a look at all of Lunardi’s latest tournament seeding updates:

In regards to the ‘bubble watch,’ three Pac-12 teams are currently featured in the “Last Four Byes,” (USC, Arizona State, Stanford). Rutgers is the other team currently in the field.
Texas, Indiana, Cincinnati and Wichita State are also projected to get in, but the margin for error by each team is non-existent.
Thursday night’s slate of games will most certainly spark another major tournament seeding projection update from Lunardi.
