SB Nation's bracket expert Chris Dobbertean still has Kansas as a No. 1 seed but can the Jayhawks hold off Missouri after the Tigers won the Big 12 Tournament in convincing fashion?

According to SB Nation's NCAA Bracket expert Chris Dobbertean, the Kansas Jayhawks are still in line to receive a No. 1 seed to the NCAA Tournament despite their loss to Baylor in the semifinals of the Big 12 Tournament although Missouri, Michigan State or Ohio State could pass them over the weekend.

As for spots three and four on the top line, North Carolina, Duke, Michigan State and Ohio State picked up wins, while Kansas joins Syracuse on the losing side of the ledger. The Jayhawks remain on the top line for now, alongside the Tar Heels, but the Blue Devils, Spartans, Buckeyes and Tigers will all have the opportunities to pass them over the weekend.

Missouri defeated Baylor in convincing fashion to win the Big 12 Tournament and stake their case for the No. 1 seed. Ohio State and Michigan State will meet on Sunday in the Big 10 Tournament championship but Duke lost on Saturday ending their shot at a No. 1 seed.
