Iowa State's Big 12 tournament run ended with a disappointing loss to Kansas, but the RPI boost from beating Oklahoma at a neutral site, as well as losing to the nation's #5 RPI in the Jayhawks has led to a pretty wide range of predictions for our seeding, ranging anywhere from a 9 to a 12 seed, according to BracketMatrix. Here's a closer look at some of them.

ESPN: South 9 seed against 8 seed Missouri in Philadelphia (South Region).

CBS: Midwest 11 seed against 6 seed Colorado State (Larry!) in Austin.

SB Nation: Midwest 9 seed against 8 seed UCLA in Lexington.

Sports Illustrated: Midwest 10 seed against 7 seed Colorado State (Larry again!) in Lexington.

We'll find out who's right at 5 PM CT on CBS.
