The NCAA Tournament is kicking into gear as teams punch their tickets to the Big Dance in March.
The Duke Blue Devils, Indiana Hoosiers, Louisville Cardinals, and Gonzaga Bulldogs are all projected to be No. 1 seeds representing the four regions, according to the latest bracketology report from SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean.
Louisville was the only projected top seed in action Thursday, and they steamrolled the Villanova Wildcats, 74-55, to advance to the Big East semifinals.
The Washington Huskies fell to the Oregon Ducks late Thursday in Las Vegas in the quarterfinal round of the Pac-12 tournament. Oregon is projected to be the eighth seed in the Southern region in Dobbertean's latest report. The Huskies defeated the Washington State Cougars on Wednesday to advance to Thursday's quarter final round.
Oregon advances to face the Utah Runnin' Utes.
