Louisville challenging for a No.2 seed.

The Duke Blue Devils moved up to a projected No. 4 seed. Their line is very much undetermined entering championship week.

Creighton's Doug McDermott hits for 45 in win.

No.7 Seeds (UCLA, New Mexico, UMASS, VCU)
UCLA dropped one seed line to a No.7 after losing by 18 to Washington State. The Bruins still finished second in the PAC-12 with a (12-6) conference record. New Mexico squandered a 16 point second half lead to San Diego State, yet the Lobos moved up a seed line to No. 7.

No.8 Seeds (Baylor, Kansas State, Oregon, George Washington)
The Oregon Ducks had their biggest win of the season. After beating No.1 seed Arizona, the Ducks moved up one seed line, and certainly secured a spot in this year’s tournament. Oregon might be a sleeper to win the PAC-12 tournament title. Kansas State lost their last two games, but they moved up a line after their lost to Baylor. George Washington finished up a solid week with two wins.

There are couple more automatic bids ready to be delivered on Sunday. Wichita State secured their No. 1 seed in Midwest with their Missouri Valley Conference title.
