Following the lead of the College Football Playoff Committee the Division I men’s basketball committee will provide a preview of the NCAA Tournament by releasing the top four seeds in the four regions on Saturday. It is designed to offer a glimpse of where things stand one month before the 68-team field is released.
“I personally don’t like it”, said Creighton coach Greg McDermott. “I understand why television likes it but from a coaching perspective and a college basketball purist perspective I kind of liked the way it was before.”
McDermott says people are more interested in the final few teams that may or may not get in than who the top seeds may be. McDermott does not believe the Bluejays will be listed as one of the top 16 seeds right now but says there is plenty of time to improve their situation.

“I am more concerned with what happens four or five weeks from now than I am tomorrow.”
Creighton athletic director Bruce Rasmussen is Vice-chairman of the committee.
