Projected seed: 3

Creighton's season has unfurled a tapestry that mixes strong brushstrokes of high-caliber wins with a few smudges that force us to temper our enthusiasm. The victory over a dominant Alabama illustrates their capability to hang with the nation's elite, offering a glimpse of their ceiling. On the flip side, stumbling against the likes of Colorado State and UNLV has raised some eyebrows, although the loss to Colorado State seems to be an outlier, given it's their most lopsided defeat. Their conference play, however, tells a tale of resilience and the ability to learn from earlier missteps, coming back to notch convincing wins against formidable Big East adversaries such as Marquette and Connecticut. The Bluejays' capability to adjust and secure victories on the road, paired with impressive home-court defenses, underlines the potential depth of their March journey. The upcoming fixture against Villanova will serve as a litmus test before the postseason, as a win can be a strong argument for a higher seeding, while a loss won't necessarily be catastrophic, but it will certainly be a missed opportunity to solidify their standing.
