Typically I wait each year till conference play starts and can swift thru resumes. Ignore this if you don't care about this type of topic.

Here is my top 20 thus far
1. Arizona
2. Wisconsin
3. Syracuse
4. Michigan State
5. Ohio State
6. Iowa State
7. Villanova
8. Oklahoma State
9. Oregon
10. Baylor
11. Florida
12. San Diego State
13. Colorado
14. Wichita State
15. Kentucky
16. Kansas
17. Iowa
18. Duke
19. UMass
20. Missouri

West region Anaheim
1. Arizona
2. Oklahoma State
3. San Diego State
4. Kentucky
5. Iowa

Midwest Indianapolis
1. Wisconsin
2. Villanova
3. Oregon
4. Wichita State
5. Duke

East New York
1. Syracuse
2. Ohio State
3. Baylor
4. Colorado
5. UMass

South Memphis
1. Michigan State
2. Iowa State
3. Florida
4. Kansas
5. Missouri


This is what I got for now. Kansas can be in South because they are right now the Big XII 4th team so like Marquette-Syracuse last year they and Iowa State could meet in a regional final. I don't expect it to look like this for much longer, but right now Duke wouldn't be a protected seed in the 4 lines IMO. Wichita State doesn't deserve to be a higher than a 4 seed right now IMO they could end up a 2 seed if they only have 1 loss at the end of the season.
 
Looks good. One error, Missouri could not play same in the same region as Florida.

I believe the committee has now altered their stance for a few years on balance / following s-curve between the region and instead focuses on geography within the seed line while still following bracket rules. Basically, treat all 2 seeds equal.

So based on your seeds (which seems reasonable), I think it would be:

West region Anaheim
1. Arizona
2. Ohio State
3. San Diego State
4. Wichita St
5. Missouri
Midwest Indianapolis
1. Wisconsin
2. Iowa State
3. Oregon
4. Kentucky
5. UMass
East New York
1. Syracuse
2. Villanova
3. Baylor
4. Colorado
5. Iowa
South Memphis
1. Michigan State
2. Oklahoma St
3. Florida
4. Kansas
5. Duke


Main changes I made was move the 2 seeds based on geography - Ohio St gets the shaft. 3 stays the same.

No way Kentucky gets sent out west instead of Wichita St. 5 line ends up just being a puzzle to make things work. Can't find a scenario to keep UMass in the east.
