The Irish are anywhere between a 5 and a 10 seed if you check out the Bracket Project. A convincing win at the RAC on Saturday is needed to really propel ND into a solid seed. Of course, Notre Dame must take care of business to lock up a BET bye.
Pitt/West Virginia tonight in the Big East. The Panthers seem to have a top two conference seed wrapped up, but a loss in either of their two final games could drop them to #3. West Virginia, on the other hand, needs the win to make a solid at-large case. A replay of Syracuse/Georgetown perhaps? Unlikely, and it looks like the Mountaineers will have to nervously wait until Selection Sunday to find out their fate.
