Projecting the field of 68 teams

San Diego State hammered another Mountain West Conference foe in Boise State on Sunday night to improve to 26-0 and remain undefeated. The Aztecs have been dominant after not being on anyone’s radar before the season. 

But an unblemished profile in late February doesn’t always equate to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, especially when playing in the 11th best conference in the country. Currently SDSU is a No. 1 seed, but that’s largely as a result of holding the top NET score from a résumé with no losses. 

The bracket could get interesting should the Aztecs lose in Mountain West play. Projected No. 1 seeds usually have room for error, but San Diego State is the worst of the projected top seeds because its résumé is much more susceptible for falling back. Baylor and Gonzaga both have one loss and are ahead, while Kansas has three losses and is still ahead. 

San Diego State has clinched the MWC title and only has three regular season games left, two at home (against UNLV and Colorado State). Should they lose either, a No. 2 seed like Duke or Maryland could ascend to the top seed line. Playing in a power mid-major conference means there’s little opportunity to bolster a tourney portfolio and ample room to stain a résumé.
