Kansas and Xavier may be No. 1 seeds, but they are nowhere near as likely to win it all as Virginia and Villanova.

Here is the BPI most likely national champions: Virginia: 23% Villanova: 21% Duke: 11% Purdue: 10% Cincinnati: 9%

Paul Sabin ESPN Analytics 

Nebraska had a SOR rank of 35, the second best not to make the tournament since 2008. Overall the perception of the Big Ten was worse than reality. Only Purdue's seed matched its deserving seed per SOR.
