If the season ended today –  (rankings here🙂

The Field of 68.  Easier to present it this way – ignoring procedural seeding rules.  Conference champs (leaders, wins first tiebreak, pairwise ranking second) in caps:

BTW: Got a lot of traffic from Seton Hall fans for having them as a #2 seed.  Hey, as of last Sunday their resume was excellent.  I am not saying it will hold or trying to “predict” – more a “should” bracket than a “will”.  Either way, they have been excellent this season – enjoy!
