ATR: Bubble tighter with Butler’s loss …

The Butler did it.  Cleveland State beat the Bulldogs to claim the Horizon League’s automatic bid.  Butler is going to receive an at-large bid, so there’s one less spot now available as we prepare for all the major conferences to start action on Thursday.

Also from Tuesday, congratulations to North Dakota State which earns the bid from the Summit in the school’s first  year of Division I eligibility.  Western Kentucky won the Sun Belt title and returns to the Dance for a second straight year.

Upset day in the opening round of Big East play saw Cincinnati get bounced by formerly winless (in league) DePaul.  Georgetown leaves early courtesy of St. John’s.  Both are now officially eliminated from at-large consideration.  Notre Dame did win it’s game against Rutgers to advance.  Today’s game with West Virginia will determine whether the Irish keep at-large hopes alive.

The next bracket update will be out later today and will reflect the updates through Tuesday.  I’ll try to provide daily updates from here on out (or as needed).
