NCAA Bracketology 2013: Duke, Louisville among No. 1 seeds

Duke and Louisville are currently projected as No. 1 seeds in the upcoming NCAA Tournament despite neither team winning their league's regular-season title.

The Duke Blue Devils, Indiana Hoosiers, Louisville Cardinals and Gonzaga Bulldogs project as the No. 1 seeds for the 2013 NCAA Tournament, according to SB Nation's resident bracketologist, Chris Dobbertean.

For more on this story, head over to Blogging the Bracket.

Neither the Blue Devils nor the Cardinals won the regular-season title in their respective leagues, but the overall resumes of the two perennial powers outweigh that of the ACC and Big East winners. As such, Dobbertean predicts the Miami Hurricanes and Georgetown Hoyas will settle for No. 2 seeds.

Gonzaga, the nation's current No. 1 overall team, dominated the West Coast Conference during the regular season and tournament. Meanwhile, Indiana won the Big Ten -- a seven-bid league, per Dobbertean -- outright.

At the other end of the bracket, the last four teams in as of Tuesday morning are the Kentucky Wildcats, St. Mary's Gaels, Iowa State Cyclones and Tennessee Volunteers. Just missing Dobbertean's cut are the Virginia Cavaliers, Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders, Ole Miss Rebels and Baylor Bears.
