Inside the Bracket: It’s Moving Day
In the world of college hoops, today and tomorrow are like Moving Day at selection headquarters. Teams on the proverbial NCAA tournament bubble will be trying to position themselves for a spot in the Field of 68. With as many as 13 spots still in question – to varying degrees – much could be decided between now and Saturday morning. It’s why hoop-heads love Championship Week almost as much as the tournament itself.
Quick notes about today’s (March 13) bracket update:
American joins the Field as the automatic qualifier from the Patriot League. Meanwhile, the Georgetown Hoyas’ hopes of an at-large berth received a serious jolt after an opening round loss to DePaul Wednesday night in Madison Square Garden. The Hoyas were among the First Five OUT yesterday and are further down the seed list today.
Inside the bracket, there were no other changes. Stanford survived against Washington State. Oregon, Baylor, and Oklahoma State all won opening round games in their league tournaments.
If you’re ready for Moving Day, the wait is over.
