Seed List early afternoon 3/12/17

All brackets updated, and have done very little scrubbing,  but like I said earlier I’m rather confident. The true story is what to do at the cut line. I’m also trying not to be a homer and be so pro-Orange, however I just don’t see a way to leave them out. Also, with three games left I believe there will be very little change in whos in or whos out with the exception of the Sun Belt Championship Game. I just see the committee being very happy with the amount of top wins on the Orange resume. Whos left out though? I see it as four teams for three spots after URI’s victory against VCU in the A10 Championship Game. And as of right now, I see it in this order, Kansas St, Providence, Syracuse, USC. The Trojans had a bad end to the year, while the Wildcats and Friars ended on high notes. The Orange are somewhere in the middle. The RPI is high, but the committee said they only use it as an organizing tool, so it will remain to see the outcome.
