The NCAA Team Race Projected Using Seeds

The NCAA recently released the brackets for the 2018 NCAA Championships. We have them on FloArena, which you can check out here. Now that all 160 seeds have been assigned, we can use them to project team scores. So who's going to win the NCAA tournament based on seeds alone? We crunched the numbers in the table below. 

A quick note, bonus points and the advancement points scored by the wrestlers who finish from 17th to 24th place are not considered. Still, this should give us a good rough estimate of how the team race could shake out.
