As we get closer to the 2020 NCAA Tournament, ESPN's Joe Lunardi and other bracketologists will be busy. The bracket will change on a daily basis.

This afternoon, Lunardi shared his new top 16 seeds for this year's bracket. Six of those teams--as well as Michigan State, Lunardi's next-in-line--are in action tonight.

Despite Baylor, San Diego State and Gonzaga's losses on Saturday, all three remain one seeds in Lunardi's bracket. However, that could change based off tonight's results.

If San Diego State loses to Colorado State--the Aztecs are at home but the Rams are a respectable 19-10 on the season--and Duke takes care of business at Wake Forest, the Blue Devils will become the new No. 1 seed in the East. Duke is currently the highest-rated two seed for Lunardi.

Below is the full breakdown of the top 16, plus other key categories from Lunardi.

Lunardi's most recent full bracket, released on Monday, can be found here. Past editions are also available.

Tonight's college basketball slate is highlighted by Iowa at Michigan State, Kentucky at Texas A&M, Texas Tech at Oklahoma and the San Diego State and Duke contests.

It is officially crunch time in the sport with Selection Sunday less than three weeks away.
