Champ Week Rankings

March 8, 2022 Champ Week Rankings

By: Carlos Alvarez

The Final AP Poll Before Selection Sunday

Here it is. The last rankings update before Selection Sunday includes some movement from teams 4-10 in both the men’s and women’s polls, but we can almost assume — barring major upsets — that teams 1-3 will be 1-seed locks for both tournaments. We’ll slow it down, though, because the men’s conference tournaments can certainly shake things up. For the final time, we present the polls:
