Each game they win this week is a probable increase in seed from a 5 seed, with a 3 seed being as high as I see them getting. If UK can make it to the championship game I'd say they're likely a 4 seed, win it and they may be lucky enough to get a 3 seed. Given the drop off from likely 1 seeds to likely 2 seeds, I think it would really benefit UK's tournament chances to get a 3 seed.

    As for UC I was kind of surprised to see that as well, perhaps it will go up after the hurting they put on USF tonight, not that USF is a good team but they got their butts whooped tonight. I think UC should end up a 5 seed, but a good showing in their conference tournament will certainly help their cause.

    This seems like one of the more exciting conference tournament weeks in a recent memories because there isn't any clear cut favorite in any of the power conferences with the exception of tOSU.
    At this point, I'd have both UC and UK as 5 seeds, with the possibility of both moving up with a few more wins.

    If UC makes it to the finals of the BEast tourney, that would give them a win over #4 Notre Dame (projected 2 seed) and another win over either Louisville (projected 4 seed) or Marquette. In that situation, they're at worst a 4 seed, and possible 3 seed.

    UK is in the same boat. Make it to the finals, 4 seed...run the table, 3 seed.

    I think UC any lower than a 6 seed, regardless of what happens tonight is a joke, IMO.

    Would much rather have UC's draw in that bracket.

    Dunno, haven't looked at the newest bracketology but Leonardi moved ND ahead of Duke as the 4th #1 seed.
