Projected seed: 1 (automatic qualifier)

Connecticut is shaping up to be a formidable force come tournament time. Their overall record is stellar, fleshed out with marquee wins, including a notable victory against a North Carolina squad that's consistently tough, and a dominant performance over Gonzaga, which is always in the mix come March. Moreover, their ability to hang tough in a road game against a Kansas team that's no stranger to deep tournament runs speaks volumes to their competitiveness. Their defensive rankings indicate a team capable of stifling opponents, particularly evident in their lockdown of a high-caliber Creighton team. While they did experience a slip against Creighton on the road, this team has shown resilience and the ability to dominate conference opponents, such as Villanova and Marquette, reinforcing their status as a top contender. With a strong finish in their remaining games, they’ll be in an excellent position to secure a high seed and make a deep run in the tournament.
