It is an improvement of being left out of the tournament as the Kentucky Wildcats is back in the field of 68.
Joe Lunardi of ESPN.com has the Cats in a first round play in game vs. Villanova as a 12 seed.
If the Wildcats win in Dayton, where the first round games are played, they would advance to Kansas City in the West Region and play the Ohio State Buckeyes.
The top seed in the West is Gonzaga and the #2 is Michigan State.
This is all moot, because my guess is the Cats will be ranked a lot higher than that.
