The seeding from 1-16 is crystal clear, because the selection committee printed it right on the brackets. I'm not entirely confident of my logic, but if I understand the brackets correctly the seeding from 1-48 looks something like this: 1. Wake Forest 2. Indiana 3. Maryland 4. Virginia *** 5. Notre Dame 6. UCLA 7. SMU *** 8. UNC Greensboro 9. UC Santa Barbara *** 10. Penn State 11. St. John’s (NY) 12. ODU 13. New Mexico *** 14. Creighton 15. Boston College 16. Virginia Commonwealth 17. North Carolina 18. UConn *** 19. Northwestern 20. Washington 21. Duke 22. Boston U *** 23. Tulsa 24. San Francisco *** 25. South Carolina 26. California 27. Loyola Marymount 28. Ohio State 29. American *** 30. Seton Hall 31. Michigan 32. Florida International *** 33. UCF *** 34. Akron *** 35. Hofstra *** 36. Long Island *** 37. Memphis *** 38. Cal St. Northridge 39. Santa Clara 40. College of Charleston *** 41. Wisconsin-Milwaukee *** 42. Michigan State *** 43. Dartmouth *** 44. Coastal Carolina *** 45. Portland 46. Western Illinois *** 47. Marist *** 48. George Washington *** *** automatic bid I tried to mark the automatic bids, so if my logic for the seeding order is correct, it looks like the last at-large team chosen was Portland, followed by Santa Clara, then Cal St. Northridge, then Michigan, etc. It appears the committee was trying to do some geographic balancing, although I have no insight at all to the "real" selection process. For instance, would a west coast team get a bid over potentially a stronger east coast team if there were a shortage of strong west coast teams? I've seen a lot of posts on other threads about "how could so-and-so get in?" or "how could so-and-so be seeded so highly?". Does anyone know definitively how they select the at-large teams?
