2010 NCAA Tournament No. 1 Seeds: Kansas, Kentucky, Duke And Syracuse

The four No. 1 seeds have been released for the 2010 NCAA Tournament:

Kansas - Midwest Region

Kentucky - East Region

Duke - South Region

Syracuse - West Region

Kansas was awarded the overall No. 1 seed, after finishing the season 32-2, 15-1 in the Big 12 Conference.

While the first three were seemingly set for the past couple of weeks, Duke as a No. 1 seed was somewhat surprising, while being selected as the third number-one, ahead of Syracuse, was almost shocking.

Our resident Bracketology expert, Chris Dobbertean of Blogging the Bracket, argued Sunday morning that West Virginia should have been awarded the fourth No. 1 seed.

While the Mountaineers and Blue Devils have similar records against the Top 50, WVU's wins are simply better. WVU owns an 8-5 record against these teams, with victories against No. 7 (twice) Georgetown, No. 9 Texas A&M, No.13 Villanova and No. 15 Pitt. Duke, meanwhile is 7-4, with their best victories coming against No. 22 Maryland and No. 32 Georgia Tech, who they split with. They also lost to the seventh-rated Hoyas. The Blue Devils could take the top spot back with a win over the Yellow Jackets in today's ACC final, but I doubt it.
