NCAA Tournament 2010 has finally reached the climax over the last four days and to make selection, picking the brackets,  Sunday with just four more Conference tournaments to wind down. The evening prior to the  unveiling of  the bracket,  they field of 65 ahead. The Conference tournaments have had more than their fair share of upsets shifting the bubble backwards and forwards as the fates of several teams are decided.

Today’s four finals could still impact both the final bracket and the seeding, particularly with Mississippi State probably needing to upset Kentucky to earn a tournament berth. Here are our projections of the 65-team field and seeding with comments ahead of the bracket being released tonight.

First seed is projected to include Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse, and Duke respectively.

Based from collected report from different critics and observers, Kansas, Kentucky and Syracuse have been the accepted top three for some time now. Duke’s body of work is still questionable, but they have a strong overall record and have dominated the ACC this season. They just edge out other contenders West Virginia and Ohio State.

West Virginia, Kansas State, Ohio State and Pittsburgh will make it to the second seed. For some of the observers, West Virginia barely misses out on a top seed, but will get to play close to home. Kansas State did enough to tie up a second seed after advancing to the Big 12 final. Pittsburgh’s overall body of work finishing second in the Big East is enough to hold off the likes of Georgetown and Baylor for a second seed. Ohio State could still improve its seeding with a good win in the Big Ten tournament final today.
