Bracketoloy: Ohio State Seals Likely Top Seed In NCAA Tournament

As the regular season winds down, the NCAA tournament picture has become a tad bit clearer. The top seeds in the tournament appear to be set at the moment. Ohio State probably clinched a number one seed with its dominating 93-65 win over Wisconsin this weekend. Kansas, Notre Dame, and Pittsburgh will likely fill out the remaining top seeds. The only other realistic choice for a number one seed is Duke, but after their loss to North Carolina, many agree that Notre Dame should claim the spot instead. 

The Big Ten is now set to send 6 teams to the Big Dance. Michigan is now firmly in the tournament as a 10 seed after a win over rival Michigan State. Meanwhile, the Spartans have dropped into the last four in, and remain on the bubble. Clemson, Marquette, and Virginia Tech join Michigan State as the last four teams slated to make the tournament, however, life on the bubble can change quickly. 

Purdue's most recent slip-up at Iowa most likely will not hurt the Boilermakers significantly, as they are still tagged as a number two seed. Illinois managed to take care of business over the weekend, defeating Indiana, and will likely be placed as a number 9 seed come Selection Sunday. 

BIG TEN:  

Ohio St. Buckeyes (1 seed)

Purdue Boilermakers (2 seed)

Wisconsin Badgers (4 seed)

Illinois Fighting Illini(9 seed)

Michigan Wolverines(10 seed)

Michigan St. Spartans(11 seed, 1st round)
