Vols basketball: Bracketology in keeping with No. Four-seeded Tennessee

Jueves, 15 Feb, 2018

Joe Lunardi's latest projections should provide some optimism for the league's fans.

Selection Sunday is March 11.

Ohio State is the No. 14 overall projected team in the field as of today, and among them as No. 4 seeds are Tennessee, Arizona and Oklahoma.

Now, let's jump into the field entering the play on Feb. 13.

Sunday afternoon, the NCAA released its projection of the top four seeds in the NCAA tournament. Joining the Buckeyes in the East are No. 1 seed Villanova, followed by No. 2 Duke and No. 3 Texas Tech.

The Vols checked in at No. 18 after reaching a high of No. 15 last week.

Mississippi State finds itself on the other side of the tournament bubble at this point, landing on Lunardi's "next four out" list. There are three teams each from the Big Ten and Big 12.
