SB Nation Bracketology: BYU is a 1 seed


Chris Dobbertean, SB Nation's college basketball guru, does Bracketology every Tuesday and Bubble Watch every Friday. This week's edition of Bracketology features BYU moving up to the top line after a Saturday win over San Diego State.

BYU finally broke through the mold in Dobbertean's bracket this week, getting to his top line as a 1 seed after defeating San Diego State this past Saturday.

Saturday's pair of losses opened the door for BYU to rise up, particularly as the Cougars dominated Mountain West foe San Diego State for the second time this season. It's likely BYU will need to claim both the MWC regular season and tournament crowns to stay on the top line, but that won't be an issue if Dave Rose's team keeps playing at its current level. If they don't, look for Duke to return to the top line, as long as they take care of North Carolina on Saturday and survive the ACC Tournament in Greensboro.

UNLV moved down to a 9 seed after defeating New Mexico last Wednesday and Wyoming this past Saturday, while Colorado State moved down to the Eighth Team out from being in the bracket after a Saturday road loss to Air Force.
