Time for our weekly check-in on where various bracketologists are projecting Maryland in their latest NCAA Tournament fields. As I said previously, there is a lot of basketball to be played. A lot will happen between now and Selection Sunday. The NCAA Tournament Field that is announced on March 15th is going to be a lot different than what people are projecting now. But that doesn't mean looking at projections is a worthless exercise. With that in mind, let's take a look at where people think the Terps currently stand.
As we mentioned yesterday, ESPN's resident bracketoligist Joe Lunardi updated his bracket for the first time since November and has Maryland as a 3-seed, playing in the same bracket as Duke. Previously, Lunardi had the Terps out of the tournament.
CBS has Maryland as a 3-seed, in the same bracket as Kentucky. Previously, CBS had Maryland as a 4-seed. Things people want to avoid at all costs in the NCAA Tournament for as long as possible - Kentucky.
SI has Maryland as a 3-seed in the West, where they give Virginia the 1-seed. They had Maryland as a 4-seed last week. It would be great for Maryland to have the chance to face Virginia again and knock them out of the Tournament.
Terps are a 5-seed, which is where they had Maryland last week. At this point, that seems incredibly low. Celebrate, Maryland fans. We've reached the point where we can complain about seedings being too low instead of not being in the field at all.
They have Maryland as a 3-seed.
