Every Power Five basketball program in the state of Texas is going to make the NCAA Tournament.
At least that's how things stand just days before the start of the Big 12 and SEC tournaments, according to the latest bracketology projection from ESPN's Joe Lunardi.
In his estimation, the highest-seeded team from the state will be Texas Tech. Head coach Chris Beard (who was just signed to a significant contract extension) has guided his team to a likely No. 4 seed in the South Region.
The lowest-seeded team of the group is Texas, who is projected to play USC in a play-in game for the right to be the West Region's No. 11 seed.
At this point, Texas Tech is a lock. TCU and Texas A&M should feel confident about earning an NCAA Tournament bid. Texas and Baylor, though, will need strong showings in the Big 12 Conference Tournaments in order to secure an invite to the big dance.
Here are Lunardi's full projections for the Power Five schools in Texas:
No. 4 Texas Tech vs. No. 13 Buffalo: South Region (Boise).
No. 6 TCU vs. No. 11 winner of UCLA or Alabama (play-in game): East Region (Wichita).
No. 7 Texas A&M vs. No. 10 Oklahoma: Midwest Region (Detroit).
No. 11 Baylor vs. No. 6 Miami: South Region (Dallas).
No. 11 Texas or USC (play-in game) vs. No. 6 Kentucky: West Region (Nashville).
