Inside the Bracket: March 10 update

dave1It’s one week until Selection Sunday.

Saturday, the buzzer-beaters, close finishes, and general Madness arrived in full force.  Which begs the question:  After all of that, where do we stand as far as the bubble and top seeds?  Well, here you go …

Last 5 IN … Temple, Saint Mary’s, La Salle, Iowa State, Kentucky

First 5 OUT … Virginia, Mississippi, Alabama, Baylor, Iowa

No. 1 seeds … Duke (East), Gonzaga (West), Indiana (Midwest), Louisville (South).  The loss at Kansas – combined with Louisville’s win over Notre Dame – dropped the Jayhawks to No. 5.  Georgetown, New Mexico, and Michigan State are in spots 5-8 on the curve entering today.

The race, however, is far from over.  Conference tournaments could play a huge role in deciding the final few at-large spots.  We also have not yet had a conference tournament winner that might take an at-large spot away.  Creighton and Wichita State both reached the Missouri Valley final.  Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s are in the West Coast final.  Belmont beat Murray State to capture the Ohio Valley’s automatic bid.  That’s not to say a potential bid-stealer won’t appear this coming week.
