Value Add Bracketology Projections: 5- to 8-seeds if Based on Top 3 Players

If the NCAA men’s basketball selection committee were choosing teams for a 3-on-3 tournament, Alabama, NC State and Utah would be enticing choices due to dominant point guards, while Green Bay, Canisius and Georgia State could also be first upset winners if they can win their conference tournament. With the possible exception of Green Bay, each of those teams will need to win their conference tournament to get a bid, but if they do keep each of them on upset alert when doing your brackets.

Marcus Smart (pictured) has dropped to No. 29 while serving his suspension for an altercation with an opposing fan at a game. Most of the other teams who would be seeded 5-8 based on their top three players at www.valueaddbasketball.com are teams that will also have high seeds in the actual tournament.
