A crash course in March Madness top seeds

If you are filling out a last minute bracket, this will help choose which number one seeds to put a little faith in.


The Florida Gators (32-2) were awarded the tournaments number one seed this past Sunday. They were awarded this honor after an SEC tournament championship and the out right SEC regular season championship. The Gators have a smothering defense, and if they can get past the number two seed in their region ( Kansas) they should be a strong favorite to make it to the Final Four.

Wichita State

Wichita State boasts the best record going into the tournament. And by best record, I mean have yet to lose since their Final Four run a year ago (34-0).  Where — keep in mind — they only missed out losing to the tournament winners in the Final Four by four points. The Shockers will come to play. Although, their Midwest region looks to be very difficult to navigate with teams like Kentucky, Duke, Louisville and Michigan all chomping at the bit.


Virginia (28-6) was probably the last 1 seed in, but not for lack of total domination in the ACC tournament. Their strong physical defense and slowed down offense may not be the most appealing to watch, but they certainly proved themselves with major wins over Pitt, Syracuse and Duke.


Arizona (30-4) may possibly be the quietest number one seed in the tourney. Coming in ranked fourth overall behind the other number one seeds.  Arizon is the only number one seed to not win their conference tourney, and they are coming in on a loss. Their only top 25 win came all the way back in November against a then ranked sixth Duke. Many are looking at a possible upset in the third round against an underachieving Oklahoma State team.
