Preseason bracketology: SEC, Big 12 each will have 6 teams in field

Kevin C. Cox

Texas will be a No. 7 seed, but otherwise the state and region aren't predicted to be represented well come March.

The Texas Longhorns will make the NCAA Tournament as a No. 7 seed as the state's lone representative, according to the very early preseason bracketology predictions by SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean.

The Longhorns are predicted to be the No. 7 seed in the South regional and play No. 10 Butler in Philadelphia. Texas will be one of six Big 12 teams to make the cut, tied for the second most of any conference with the SEC and Big 10 and behind only the eight tournament teams the Big East is predicted to produce. Of those six SEC teams, LSU and Texas A&M didn't make the cut.

Also not making the cut were Houston or Rice, as Conference USA was one of 21 one-bid conferences predicted. The Memphis Tigers nabbed that lone spot as the conference's automatic qualifier and the No. 4 seed in the East regional.

Louisville, Kentucky, Ohio State and Indiana are predicted to nab the four No. 1 seeds, with Louisville as the top overall team.
