Bracketology updates: Duke, Kansas, Xavier vie for two No. 1 spots in NCAA Tournament

The battle for No. 1 seeds begins Thursday as all four top seeds take the floor in the first round of their respective conference tournaments, as well as the one team left chasing the top line: Duke. Four of the five teams will face opponents in desperate need of wins to keep their own NCAA Tournament at-large hopes alive.

Virginia has locked up the overall No. 1 seed, even if it loses to Louisville in the ACC tournament Thursday. In a season of inconsistency throughout college basketball, the Cavaliers have been the exception. They may not be a dominant team, but they have been the hardest to beat.

Villanova will also be a top seed when all is said and done. The Wildcats’ two wins over Xavier help to give them a cushion to stay on top of the bracket when all is said and done, even if they take a loss to Marquette Thursday afternoon.

That leaves the other three spots up for grabs.

Xavier and Kansas occupy those spots right now and would stay there with wins in their respective conference tournaments. It would be especially helpful for Xavier if it could beat Villanova in the final, but it is not necessary. The Musketeers
