A Thought On The 3 Seed

After the Orange ran all the way to the finals of the Big East tourney, I thought they’d get a four seed, and that seemed to be the consensus around the internet as well. In a happy surprise the selection committee put Syracuse in the 3 spot in the South regional. Maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise that Syracuse earned a three seed. You only have to look back to 2006, when the Orange won the Big East tourney to see how the selection committee values teams that can make runs in the Big East tournament. That years team went from being at best a last four-in team, but likely was out, to a five seed. Very overrated by the committee, even if G-Mac was healthy for the Texas A&M game. So moving up after B.E.T. success is not unprecedented.
