Bracketology 1/31/18

Georgia got a nice win at home against Florida to move them into the field. North Carolina is out of the protected seeds for the first time all season in the wake of their 3-game skid, although a home date with Pittsburgh on Saturday should allow the Tar Heels to snap out of the skid. Tonight, I'll be keeping my eye on Butler @ Marquette. With 70% of the Big East in the field, it's going to be a struggle for bubble teams like these two to rack up wins.

4: Texas Tech, Arizona, Tennessee, Kentucky
