Professional Realist's Projection for the NCAA Selection Committee's Projected Top 16 Seeds - Feb. 11th, 2018

Tomorrow, the Committee will release the Top 16 seeds as they stand for the 2018 NCAA Tournament. This release will give us a bit of a look into the thinking of the Committee, so I'm going to put up my prediction for the Top 16 that the Committee will release, just to see if my thinking is on par with theirs. (Spoiler: It won't be.)
I'm particularly interested to see where the Committee puts Cincinnati, as the Bearcats have an impressive record, but do not play in one of the top conferences in College Basketball. Also interested in the Oklahoma/West Virginia question because both are clearly not playing their best basketball and WVU made the last spot only by virtue of having more road wins and beating OU twice this season already.

#1 Seeds

Virginia

Auburn

#2 Seeds
Kansas
Purdue
