Here is my final seed list for all of you folks. I was down to St. Bonaventure, Louisville, and NC State for my last 2 spots in the field after Davidson stole a bid by winning the Atlantic 10 Title. I have decieded that NC State just beat too many teams and I probably have them underseeded, so they are in. St. Bonaventure owns a win over the Syracuse Orange and the Rhode Island Rams which gives them 2 Top 50 RPI wins and 3 Quad 1 wins while Louisville has 0 Top 50 RPI wins and 3 Quad 1 wins. St. Bonaventure also has more away wins than Louisville, which were two big metrics the committee chair told us in the Top 16 release a month ago. Louisville doesn’t have any bad losses, while St. Bonaventure does. These resumes are close, but it comes down to which metrics the committee looks at. My bracketing is in process, will be posted in the next 15 minutes or so.
