Over the course of the next few days work productivity is going to drop. There will be more meetings mind you, but they are not going to be talking much shop. No, it is going to be bracket time; time for armchair basketball coaches and wanna-be experts to test their skill and luck by predicting how the NCAA Tournament is going to play out.

After the final conference tournaments finished playing the selection committee got together and decided who is going to be dancing and who would not be. The No. 1 overall selection was no surprise–Florida. After finishing the regular season at the top of the polls and beating Kentucky in the SEC Finals it had to be the easiest choice the committee made.

Virginia, Wichita State, and Arizona were named the other No. 1 seeds. With their strong finish to win the ACC regular season and tournament the Cavaliers were another no-brainer. There was some talk that Wichita State may not be one even though the Shockers are the only undefeated team, but logic prevailed and they put on top of the Midwest Region.

Of the four Arizona may be the only surprise after losing to UCLA in the Pac-12 finals.

The first four game will play on Tuesday (16 Albany vs. 16 Mount St. Mary’s; 12 NC State vs. 12 Xavier) and Wednesday (16 Cal Poly vs. 16 Texas Southern; 11 Iowa vs. 11 Tennessee) with the field of 64 to start on Thursday.
