Projecting the field of 68 teams

Kansas may trail Baylor in the Big 12 Conference race. But the Jayhawks’ NCAA tournament résumé keeps getting prettier to the point where one loss for the Bears would position them for the top overall No. 1 seed. 

Kansas (21-3, 10-1) won their ninth in a row and added yet another Quadrant 1 win to their tourney portfolio by defeating West Virginia on the road in Morgantown. WVU (18-6) is a projected No. 3 seed and the win gives Kansas a nation-leading 11 Quad 1 victories. 

Kansas, in addition to two defeats of the Mountaineers, has victories against Dayton, Colorado, Tennessee and Texas Tech. Its only three losses — Duke, Villanova, Baylor — all came against top-30 opponents. 

Kansas guard Ochai Agbaji shoots a three pointer over West Virginia guard Jordan McCabe during the first half at WVU Coliseum.

A Feb. 22 rematch against Baylor will give coach Bill Self’s team an opportunity to show the committee its merit to be the top team on the bracket come Selection Sunday in a month. 

► No. 1 seeds: Baylor, Kansas, Gonzaga, San Diego State.

► Last four in: Wichita State, Florida, Stanford, Cincinnati. 

► First Four out: Georgetown, North Carolina State, Memphis, Richmond.
