Bracket Watch - 1 Number 1 seed up for grabs, Kansas, Tennessee, Duke, or Wisconsin?

Both #2 UCLA and #3 Memphis had easy victories in there conference tournaments on Thursday. Both teams played like teams with something to lose, and they do a number 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Both teams now look to be in good shape for a number 1 seed in the tournament. #1 North Carolina which beat Duke last weekend appears to have a lock on a number 1 seed. The remaining number 1 seed is up for grabs between likely Tennessee, Kansas, Duke, and Wisconsin as a dark hoarse if all three lose in there conference tournaments. We like Kansas for the final number 1 seed due to the opportunity they have to pickup a big win over Texas in the Big 12 Conference Tournament..

#2 There was no contest this time as UCLA beat California in the quarterfinals of the PAC 10 tournament 88 to 66. In there last meeting California fans griped that the Bears would have won the game if not for a few questionable calls in the closing seconds. UCLA was led in scoring by Darren Collison's 19 points, Josh Shipp added 18 points, and freshman / PAC 10 Player of the Year Kevin Love had only 11 as his minutes were limited due to early foul trouble.

Number 3 Memphis had no trouble beating Tulane on Thursday in the Conference USA Tournament winning 75 to 56. Chris Douglas - Roberts led Memphis in scoring with 17. Memphis a bad free throw shooting team on the year at 58.1 even managed to shoot 71% on the line in the win. Memphis is looking to continue there strong play and win the Conference USA Title and hopefully secure a number 1 seed in the NCAA tournament for the second time in three years.

Who will get the final number 1 seed for March Madness?
