Much like the College Football Playoff's in-season rankings, the preliminary seeds are created to heighten fan interest and prepare the selection committee for March's task of bracketing the 68-team field, set to be revealed March 11.
If they Spartans win out to finish their regular season and then go on to win the Big Ten Tournament, they would improve their case to be a top-2 seed or better in the 2018 NCAA Tournament.
UA's 81-67 win over USC clearly helped the Wildcats stay among the top 16 seeds.
The committee is no longer using RPI top 50, top 100, top 200, and 201 and above as five dividing categories.

So while Virginia Tech's away win vs. Virginia was an RPI top-50 win a year ago, it is now a Quadrant 1 win. Cincinnati, 3. Michigan State, 4.
Villanova was selected as the second No. 1 seed (East Region). Duke, 3. Texas Tech, 4.
The No. 2 Cavaliers (23-2, 12-1 ACC) travel to No. 25 Miami (18-6, 7-5 ACC) on Tuesday to face the Hurricanes at 9 p.m.at the Watsco Center. Kansas, North Carolina and Arizona filled out the top four in the West Region in Los Angeles.
Treasurys are surging as stocks get slammed
And swings in bond prices are likely to become more common than in recent years, when returns were unusually smooth, experts say. "If we see 3.0 percent next week that is going to spook people more - the equity market psyche is fragile at this point".
Mourinho states Pogba's case for the defence
For me, it was preparation of the games. "I've settled in well and am keen to help the team climb the table". Mourinho spoke well of Benitez ahead of the game as tensions between the pair seemingly continue to thaw.
