Latest Bracket: Kentucky locks up No. 1 overall seed
Kentucky has locked in the overall No. 1 seed with Syracuse losing to Cincinnati. The other top seeds remain the same, but North Carolina moves ahead of Kansas on the s-curve. The Jayhawks are now slotted West, with UK moving to the Midwest – a slightly closer location. Carolina goes South. That’s the fun news.
March 10 Bracket Projection – Bracketology
UPDATED EDITOR NOTE: With all the rapid-fire changes into the early morning hours, the original update posted at 3:30 a.m. (ET ) mentioned but did not account for (in the bracket) the automatic bid from the Pac-12. I have corrected this now (9:40 a.m. ET). Sorry for that miscue. Here’s how it plays out. NC State moves to the first team out and Texas plays Drexel in the First Four. For now, Arizona grabs the Pac-12’s auto bid slot as the highest remaining seed in the tournament.
The bubble remains a strange and ever-moving target. We’ll be reviewing everything thoroughly again, so things could change. We also have some potential bid stealers alive in the Atlantic 10, Conference USA, and Pac-12. Just another crazy night. Marshall and Texas join the First Four. Colorado and Arizona play for the Pac-12 title. In the SEC, Ole Miss remains alive thanks to a win over Tennessee. That drops the Volunteers among those just out.
What will Saturday hold? Who knows. But if it’s like Thursday and Friday, we’re in for another bumpy ride.
