Bracketology 3/3/18

What a day at MSG- Penn State kept their (slim) hopes alive with a last second win against Ohio State, Purdue and Michigan State gutted out tough wins to advance, and Nebraska's hopes all but disappeared against Michigan. Elsewhere, Rhode Island lost again although losing at Davidson is not nearly as damaging as the home loss to St. Joe's. If the Rams lose in the A-10 quarters, they'll be fine but Selection Sunday will be a little nervy.

Packed day of hoops throughout the bracket today- bubble teams I have my eye on include Texas (at home against West Virginia), Marquette (at home against Creighton) and Syracuse (at home against Clemson). All of those are winnable, big upside games that could help move each team into the field.

1: Virginia, Villanova, Kansas, Xavier
2: Duke, Michigan State, Purdue, North Carolina
3: Auburn, Tennessee, Cincinnati, Wichita State
4: West Virginia, Texas Tech, Clemson, Arizona
5: Gonzaga, Kentucky, Ohio State, Michigan
6: Houston, TCU, Arkansas, Nevada
7: Texas A&M, Miami (FL), Florida, Seton Hall
8: Missouri, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Virginia Tech
9: Florida State, Creighton, Butler, St. Mary's
10: North Carolina State, Arizona State, Middle Tennessee, St. Bonaventure
11: USC, Kansas State, Alabama, (Providence/Baylor)
12: (Louisville/Washington), Loyola Chicago, New Mexico State, Louisiana
13: Vermont, Buffalo, Murray State, South Dakota State
14: Montana, UNC Greensboro, Northern Kentucky, Northeastern
15: Bucknell, Florida Gulf Coast, UC Irvine, Penn
16: Iona, Wagner, (Nicholls State/Radford), (Hampton/Arkansas Pine Bluff)

First Four Out: Texas, Mississippi State, Boise State, UCLA
Next Four Out: Marquette, LSU, Nebraska, Syracuse
In Consideration: Utah, Penn State, South Carolina, Georgia, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State

Moving In: Iona, Radford
Moving Out: Canisius, UNC Asheville
