Early predictions had Louisville, North Carolina and Pittsburgh as likely candidates to earn number one seeds while Memphis was also vying for a number one seed. 

Then there was the question of which teams would just barely squeak into the 2009 NCAA Tournament. 

Would it be St. Mary's?  Creighton?  San Diego State?
