With only a few games left to play before the playoffs here is a projection of where teams would be seeded if the season ended today. This is not to say how the brackets will ultimately end up, teams can and will move up or down or even in or out of the playoffs entirely in the coming weeks. This is just one man's projection of how the seeding committee would seed the teams as of today based on how they have viewed teams and conferences in the past.

The next bracketology update will be this weekend. Next week's installments will include additional resume breakdowns of teams vying for the same seeds (i.e. Baldwin and Massapequa) and a conference vs. conference breakdown.
