Bracket Update - March 12th

3/12/2008
There was very little change after Monday night's games -- Butler and Western Kentucky won as expected. Therefore, I didn't update the brackets until we have some meaningful games on Tuesday completed. The biggie is Syracuse vs Villanova, with the loser likely staying home.

I updated my brackets with the Villanova win, and surprisingly Syracuse is still in by the skin of its teeth. This is likely to change as we go further on into the week. Most have South Alabama in, while I don't. UNLV may get in on the strength of its inflated RPI numbers, plus it has the opportunity to pad a few more wins in the Mountain West tourney. In the end, I think somebody will pass Syracuse for one of the last spots. Villanova looks safe even if they lose to Georgetown tomorrow. Ohio State shouldn't slide behind Syracuse in the pecking order even if they lose to Michigan State.

Dayton is doing everything it can to play it outself out of a tourney bid, but they did manage to hold on against St Louis in overtime. They may have to beat Xavier tomorrow to have any chance. They do have inflated RPI numbers on their side. Assuming Mississippi beats Georgia tomorrow, we may have another one of those 'loser stays home' match-ups with Kentucky in the quarterfinals.
