Some problems you might have: Oklahoma is a 3 when Kansas is a 2, LSU is a 6 when West Virginia is a 7, and UCONN is a 1 when Memphis is a 2, and Utah is a 7 when BYU is an 8.
Most problems you have other than these are because the Big 10, ACC, and Big East have 3 regions of 2 and 1 region of 1. In the regions of 2, one team must be on 1, 16, 5, 8, 12, 9, 4, 13 half of the bracket and the other must be on the other side to prevent a match up in the Sweet 16. Other problems may have been in conferences liek the MWC, SEC, and A-10 whereI had to move a team a seed up or down to prevent them from being in the same conference.
If Mississippi St. win the SEC then they are in. If they lose, then Saint MAry's becomes the last team in.

Is it possible to get 12 teams in the tournament from 1 conference? Unlikely, but this is the way that can make it possible. This is the remaining schedule. I know Syracuse is my favorite team, and I wanted them to lose a game, but I don't want them to lose either of their next 2, and after that the schedule gets easy until the last game which I think they would be ready for. I had them lose in the conference championship though. The bold team is the winner. Pitt is beating DePaul right now by the way. Some of the games don't matter especially Duke vs. St. John's and DePaul's game agianst one of the bottom 3. I gave Duke a victory and DePaul had to get one conference win. Some teams like Cincinnati and Seton Hall and Notre Dame and Georgetown will have multiple chances to get their 9th win, but I don't think they can get above that with extra wins against team like Pitt, Lousiville, Nova, Cuse, UCONN. They had to win one so I tried to give it against a team that could afford a loss. And again I know some of these are not truly possible, but I just wanted to see how many teams could get it with a lot of luck.<tbody> * Sat, Feb 07 DePaul Pittsburgh Rosemont, Ill. 2:00 p.m. BIG EAST Network Local

Somewhat possible. I'd rather take a 9 win Big East team than a 10 or 11 win SEC team or 9 wins from any other conference. These are what I tried to get the standings to look like. If I am a game off especially in the overall column, then I am sorry. Also sorry the teams aren't in order, they are on a table.
<tbody> Connecticut13-523-6Marquette12-623-8Louisville14-423-7Pittsburgh12-624-6Villanova12-624-7Providence11-719-11Syracuse13-525-6Cincinnati9-919-12West Virginia11-722-9Georgetown9-918-11Seton Hall10-819-11Notre Dame9-918-12St. Johns (N.Y.)3-1512-19South Florida4-149-21Rutgers1-1710-21DePaul1-179-22 </tbody>
Those would be the records without the conference tournaments. Here is what could really happen there.
Seton Hall vs. DePaulCincinnati vs. RutgersGeorgetown vs. St. John'sNotre Dame vs. USF 1) Seton Hall vs. Providence2) Cincinnati vs. West Virginia3) Georgetown vs. Marquette
4) Notre Dame vs. Villanova 5) Game 1 (Seton Hall) vs. Louisville6) Game 2 (Cincinnati) vs. Syracuse7) Game 3 (Georgetown) vs. Connecticut8) Game 4 (Notre Dame) vs. Pittsburgh
9) Game 5 (Louisville) vs. Game 8 (Notre Dame)10) Game 6 (Syracuse) vs. Game 7 (Connecticut)
Game 9 (Louisville) vs. Game 10 (Syracuse)Louisville wins This is how it would affect the standings (not in the conference column) <tbody> Connecticut13-524-7Marquette12-623-9Louisville14-426-7Pittsburgh12-624-7Villanova12-624-8Providence11-719-12Syracuse13-527-7Cincinnati9-921-13West Virginia11-722-10Georgetown9-920-12Seton Hall10-821-12Notre Dame9-921-13St. Johns (N.Y.)3-1512-20South Florida4-149-22Rutgers1-1710-22DePaul1-179-23 </tbody> This would overall really hurt PC b/c they don't have 20 wins, but they did beat Syracuse, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati (2x), Rhode Island, and Seton Hall. All their losses were to Top 63 RPI so far. Georgetown, Notre Dame, Cincinnati, and Seton Hall would still be close calls. Hopefully there would not be too many SEC, Pac-10, Big 10, and Big-12 Teams on the bubble. ACC would likely have Va Tech, Miami, and Florida St. on the bubble and only Va Tech I might take over one of these. Miami can take teams deep and not finish. Florida St. is really struggling. Hopefully this all works out, lol.
