NCAA Bracketology 2012: Duke Moves Into No. 1 Seed In West Region

Got to love Braketology.

It looked like the desert was going to get the Ohio State Buckeyes as the big fish in its Sweet 16 and Elite 8 possibilities but with all the shake up at the top of the national rankings, Phoenix could be in line for one of the premier college basketball programs in all the land - the Duke Blue Devils.

After Duke's incredible comeback win over the rival North Carolina Tar Heels, the Blue Devils are now a member of the front line of seeds in SB Nation's Bracketology, placing them as the no. 1 in the West Region. To make things even more fun, another national power, the Kansas Jayhawks, sit at no. 2 in the region. If the region goes all chalk, Phoenix could see a Duke-Kansas Elite 8 game.

Can't get much bigger than that.

But lurking are top flight programs like the Marquette Golden Eagles (no. 3) and Louisville Cardinals (no. 4), plus some up-and-comers like the Wichita St. Shockers (no. 5) and Murray State Racers (no. 6).

Could be fun in the sun. But with college basketball, this could all change by next week. Stay tuned.
