Bracketology: March 12, 2017

Six more automatic bids still need to be handed out, and the final No. 1 seed can be either of three different teams, but we'll try to project the field of 68 hours before it becomes official on Selection Sunday. At this moment, Villanova is all but assured of the No. 1 overall seed; with Kansas also very likely to receive a No. 1 seed, probably in the Midwest Regional.
