With a Big East regular season title on lockdown and losses for Wisconsin and Gonzaga, the Wildcats are moving up in this week’s AP and Coaches’ polls. Villanova is up to #4 in both polls, hopping over the Badgers and the Bulldogs. The Wildcats are turning some heads, claiming a #1 seed in many bracketologists’ eyes. ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has hopped on board, naming them to the top seed of the West Region in his most recent bracket.

Lunardi’s Bracket:

As for the rest of the Big East, Providence and Butler remain in the Top 25 rankings. Providence moves up to #24 in the AP Poll and #23 in the Coaches’ Poll. Butler is listed at #21 in both polls. In regards to Lunardi’s bracket, he predicts six Big East teams will make the NCAA Tournament. Georgetown is also listed in the West region, projected as a 6-seed. According to Lunardi, St. John’s, Providence, Butler, and Xavier will be joining the Wildcats and the Hoyas in the Big Dance.
