Conference play has started, which means the NCAA tournament is on the way, which means it's time to begin weekly updates on Bracketology 2012.
Chris Dobbertean, SB Nation's leading Bracketologist, began his weekly projections of the 68-team NCAA Tournament field on Monday. The dust has not settled and the winds of the NCAA men's basketball regular season could still result in plenty of change by the time March Madness arrives, but Dobbertean currently projects the Connecticut Huskies as a No. 4 seed in the Midwest Regional.
The Huskies, who are currently riding a two-game losing streak against opponents not generally regarded as the Big East's finest (Rutgers and Seton Hall), would meet Davidson in the first round. The Wildcats are no pushover -- holders of a 10-4 record, including 4-0 in the Southern Conference, they have already upset Kansas in Kansas City.
Dobbertean projects that Harvard will earn the No. 13 seed in the East Regional, where the Crimson would meet Kansas State.
