Kentucky sits at 17-8 on the season and 6-6 in the SEC with six games remaining before the SEC Tournament begins in early March. Louisville is currently projected as an 11-seed and in the same region as Kentucky (as the selection committee loves to do). The top 16 teams and their seedings are as follows.
  1. Virginia -- 1-seed, South Region
  2. Villanova -- 1-seed, East Region
  3. Xavier -- 1-seed, Midwest Region
  4. Purdue -- 1-seed, West Region
  5. Auburn -- 2-seed, Midwest Region
  6. Kansas -- 2-seed, West Region
  7. Duke -- 2-seed, East Region
  8. Cincinnati -- 2-seed, South Region
  9. Clemson -- 3-seed, Midwest Region
  10. Texas Tech -- 3-seed, East Region
  11. Michigan State -- 3-seed, South Region
  12. North Carolina -- 3-seed, West Region
  13. Tennessee -- 4-seed, South Region
  14. Ohio State -- 4-seed, East Region
  15. Arizona -- 4-seed, West Region
  16. Oklahoma -- 4-seed, Midwest Region
Two other SEC teams, Tennessee and Auburn, are both projected to be among the top four seeds. Kentucky has yet to play Auburn this season but will do so on Wednesday at 9 p.m. on ESPN2. [mobile_ad]
