Projections Primer: Making The Case


The postseason picture is always changing, and with our latest projections coming Wednesday afternoon, it’s a great time to take an inside look at how last week’s national seeds fared, while also dissecting each team’s situation and looking at which direction they’re trending.

In addition to analysis on each top eight national seed, we also take an in-depth look at teams trending the right or wrong direction from an at-large bid standpoint.

Let’s get you primed for the latest projections.

1. Florida

Record/RPI: 41-12, 1

RPI Metrics: 2 SOS, 30 NSOS — 15-6 vs. Top 25, 24-9 vs. Top 50, 32-11 vs. Top 100

Trending: Same

Overview: It’s not often a team locks up the top national seed in the NCAA tournament before the regular season ends, but the Gators have accomplished that goal barring a massive surprise on Selection Monday. UF has the nation’s best RPI and has an astonishing 34 wins vs. Top 100 and 15 wins vs. Top 25. Those are sterling marks, while also having a strong 12-6 record on the road. UF took care of business against Georgia this past weekend. It’s status quo for the Gators, who have now won 15-straight SEC series.

2. Stanford
