NCAA Basketball: Final Four Championship Game-Villanova vs North Carolina Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has published his first version of his 2017 Bracketology and he has the Villanova Wildcats as a 1-seed.

The St. Joe’s alumn has put the Wildcats in the East to play the opening set of games in Buffalo where ‘Nova would play the winner of a theoretical Howard/New Mexico St play-in. A second round matchup against Maryland or Texas A&M could round out the first week.

‘Nova is joined on the 1-Line with Kentucky, Duke, and North Carolina. Xavier (3), Georgetown (12), Creighton (6), Butler (8), and Seton Hall (11) would also be representing the BIG EAST.

What do you think about this possible bracket?
