Bracketology 2/28/18

I moved North Carolina up to a 2 seed even though they lost, as I dropped Auburn for their loss over Arkansas. I felt like the top 9 teams were a definite tier above the rest of the 3 seeds, so the Heels move up. Elsewhere, my jaw dropped when I saw the Rhode Island score- after getting waxed by 30 at home by St. Joe's the Rams fall quite a bit. They have the potential to fall quite a bit further as they have a deceptively tricky game at Davidson to close the regular season followed by the A-10 tournament. The game of the night was also in the A-10 as St. Bonaventure knocked off Davidson in a 3OT thriller to stay in the field. Tonight, Syracuse has a tough, but low-upside game at Boston College, and LSU faces the same situation at South Carolina.
