On the day where we all find out who is going where, it’s become fairly likely that the Texas Longhorns will wind up with a No. 3 seed in this year’s field. They could have solidified a No. 2 by beating Kansas in the Big 12 Tournament Final, but instead their role is completely up for grabs. ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has them in the West right now, taking on No. 14 seed Indiana State.
Texas A&M, who was waylaid by Texas in the semifinals of the Big 12 Tourney, had hopes of getting up to as high as a fourth seed, but instead will likely settle for a fifth seed at best. According to Lunardi, they will snag the fifth seed in the East and play Conference USA Champion Memphis.
There isn’t too much excitement as far as the local conferences go at this point. UAB has a decent case for one of the last few spots, but Lunardi has them out. UTEP isn’t going to make it. No Houston teams will make it after Alabama State knocked off Texas Southern on Friday night.
As far as The Bracket Project is concerned, Texas has the last No. 2 seed and Texas A&M will grab a sixth seed.
