In SI's bracket, CU was projected to face 14th-seeded Monmouth in the East region.
Creighton's bracket would be interesting if it came to fruition. Villanova is predicted to be the top seed in the East. With North Carolina, Duke and Oregon, led by former CU coach Dana Altman, as the No. 2, 3 and 4 seeds, respectively.
"Keep an eye on Creighton, however, which lost senior point guard Maurice Watson Jr. for the season to a torn ACL," SI's Michael Beller wrote. "The Bluejays lost their first game without Watson, falling at home to Marquette. This remains a seriously talented team, but they’re going to have to find a way to steady themselves after losing their leader. They have a good chance to get right against Georgetown and DePaul this week."
Kansas, Gonzaga and Baylor were the other top seeds. Butler (No. 4 seed), Xavier (No. 6), Marquette (No. 10) and Seton Hall (No. 11 play-in game) joined the Bluejays and Wildcats in representing the Big East.
