While the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team has remained idle for the last two days, there’s been plenty of movement around them in college basketball. It’s been an especially chaotic championship week, and some of those games have moved teams both above and below the Orange around considerably.
There are still a few more games to play on Sunday. But here’s where experts see Syracuse seeded as of right now, in our final bracketology update before the entire bracket is revealed later.
I’d take Minnesota over Iowa. And Utah State’s increasingly concerning as the sort of plucky, maybe underestimated team that can come out on fire in the tournament. Either way, sets up a tough second round matchup with a 1-seed.
The Athletic: West Region, vs. Utah State
CBS Sports: West Region, vs. Utah State
SB Nation: Midwest Region, vs. Minnesota
More Utah State, but also a lot of West region. Wofford’s also concerning. I’ll take UCF, however. And give me Rick Barnes in the second round (Tennessee would be the top seed in that SB Nation Midwest Region).
USA Today: South Region, vs. Wofford
More Wofford. But PLEASE give me USA Today’s pick, which puts Syracuse opposite a Maryland team that no one should trust.
Thoughts? Seems a pretty even split between 8/9/10. Would probably rather the 10, especially if it means facing the Terps.
