Definitely not meaningless to Akron and Kent.

It looks like the committee switched Arizona and Oregon based on the Pac-12 tournament final. But those two teams were very close before the game.

Committee obviously didn't think Duke was close enough to UNC to pass them based on the ACC final.

Kansas is 28-4, including 5-1 against other teams that received NCAA tournament top-4 seeds. They kept their #1 seed because they were far enough ahead of the teams that got #2 and 3 seeds.

Kansas State was the last at-large in the field and probably made the tournament because they beat Baylor in the Big 12 tournament, but not because that game was played in the conference tournament. It was because it was their 3rd win of the season over an NCAA top-4 seed.

Oregon's seed was impacted by Chris Boucher's injury. That is a big blow to their chances, and to the Pac-12 having a good tournament. The Committee factored that in a little bit, although they only have a couple games to examine the team without him.

The committees chairman said that Duke improved from a 4 to a 2 seed because of their performance in the ACC tournament. He also said that the 1's were already solid going into the tournaments.

Unless the match-ups with the seventh seed are substantially worse than the match-ups with the fifth seed, going from a 4 seed to a 2 seed would normally be an appreciable increase in odds of getting to the Sweet Sixteen.

Everything about college sports is rigged.

Try telling that to Monmouth, Akron, and all the other mid-majors that lost their conference tournament.
