Bracketology: Kansas Basketball En Route To No. 1 Seed

The Kansas Jayhawks basketball team has compiled a 27-2 record and a 12-2 conference record as the 2010-11 college basketball season nears the end. KU has two regular season games remaining -- Texas A&M and at Missouri -- before entering the conference tournament where they may be the favorites to win.

That resume sounds like a No. 1 seed and, according to SB Nation's bracketology guru, it is. Chris Dobbertean predicts the Jayhawks get a No. 1 seed in his latest NCAA tournament project, which you can read here.

That's no surprise. In fact, it'd be a surprise at this point if KU didn't get a No. 1 seed. Even if they slip in one of their two final games, and have a decent showing at the Big 12 tourney, I suspect they'll get that No. 1 seed.

In Dobbertean's projection, KU is a No. 1 seed in the Southwest and will play the winner of one of the play-in games. They would play the winner of Cincinnati and Old Dominion and, if they won that game, would have a matchup with Connecticut or Wisconsin (unless one of those two teams are upset in the first or second round....which is almost a certainty in the NCAA tournament).

We'll see how Kansas finishes out the season. Texas A&M and Missouri is, as Bill Self said this week, probably the hardest two-game stretch of the year for the Jayhawks so two wins is no guarantee.
