ESPN Names The Four No. 1 Seeds Right Now

The opening tip for Kansas and Duke in the Elite Eight.

The NCAA Tournament is still two months away, but as conference play continues, the projected 68-team bracket will undergo frequent changes.

ESPN's Joe Lunardi has updated his NCAA bracket prediction. Lunardi typically changes his "Bracketology" weekly.

Lunardi projects the entire field, including which teams will make it off the bubble and which will be left behind.

His current No. 1 seeds are:

  • East: Virginia
  • South: Michigan
  • West: Duke
  • Midwest: Tennessee

Tennessee is the latest addition to the No. 1 line, as the Vols replaced Michigan State. We'll have a major showdown between potential one-seeds this weekend when Duke hosts Virginia.

If the Blue Devils lose, they could drop to the two-line. It would be their second consecutive loss and third overall.
