Weekly Seed Report

Are there any good teams out there besides our four No. 1 seeds? Fourteen of the AP's Top 25 lost at least once last week, marking the sixth straight week in this season of parity that 14 or more have gone down. Similarly, seven of our 16 seeded teams lost at least once, as did many of the teams that might have hoped to replace them. That allowed Alabama and Miami to hold on as No. 2 and No. 3 seeds, respectively. Ohio State lost twice but still held on to a No. 4 seed. Oregon and Virginia weren't so lucky. The Ducks lost twice (both times in overtime), and the Cavaliers lost their fourth consecutive game, and both dropped out of the seedings, giving way to surging Pittsburgh and Indiana.
