Bracketology 3/3/19

A massive Saturday leads to changes up and down the seed list. At the top, Tennessee reclaims the 1 seed in the Midwest region with their dominant win over Kentucky. Houston hangs on to a 3 seed despite their home loss to UCF, and Texas Tech moves up after their win at TCU. Towards the bubble, UCF (@Houston), Utah State (vs. Nevada), Texas (vs. Iowa State), Georgetown (vs. Seton Hall) and Indiana (vs. Michigan State) were the day's big winners. UCF, Utah State and Texas all should be feeling very good about their chances now, while Georgetown is firmly in the picture. Florida (vs. Georgia), Alabama (vs. LSU), Seton Hall (@Georgetown) and St. Mary's (vs. Gonzaga) were the day's bubble losers. Florida was looking very safe but is now back in the meat of the bubble, St. Mary's needs the autobid now, and Alabama and Seton Hall just need wins. The last spot in the bracket came down to Georgetown or Temple, but I decided to move the Hoyas in as Temple really only has the Houston win going for them.
