Buckeye’s Final Bracket

It’s been a fun ride! This is my final bracket of the year. After doing some extra research I have decided that even if Wisconsin beats Ohio State in the B1G Championship, I still think Marquette and Arizona’s overall body of work are better and worthy of a 4. This leaves Wisconsin with a 5. No matter what happens, I believe Ohio State deserves a 3.

The teams below are now organized according to my S-Curve. The first team on each seed line is the best (in my opinion) and the last is the worst. (This S-Curve is pending the result of the B1G Championship, I believe a Wisconsin win would move them ahead of UNLV on the S-Curve but it wouldn’t change the seed line so it doesn’t really matter).
