NCAA Bracket Predictions 2014: Projecting the March Madness Field at Week 18

Selection Sunday is just 10 days away, and for the first time in more than a month, there's been a shake-up among the No. 1 seeds.

Syracuse has lost four out of its last five games, which creates room for Villanova to make its debut on the top line.

Further down in the seeding, we had some major movement among Atlantic 10 teams. VCU jumps all the way up to a No. 5 seed, and Saint Louis plummets to a No. 7.

In recapping the rest of the projected field, we'll start at the bottom by looking at the last few teams to be included and excluded from the field.

After that, we'll present each seeded region, including the subregional locations in which each pod would be played and some commentary on select teams. Then we provide the ranking of the No. 1 seeds followed by a summary of the entire field broken up by conference.

 

Win-loss records on the following slides exclude games played against opponents not in D-I and are current through the start of play on Friday, March 7. All Rating Percentage Index (RPI) rankings are via ESPN, and KenPom (KP) rankings are via KenPom.com. Both are current through the start of play on Thursday, March 6.
