2015 Bracket Projection Results

dave1Although the Selection Committee tossed a bit of a curveball Sunday evening by including UCLA in its Field of 68, I’m pleased with the final results of my 2015 projected bracket.  Here are the numbers …

  • 66 of 68 teams | 34 of 36 at-large selected correctly
  • 44 teams placed on the correct seed line
  • 17 teams within one of the actual seed line
  • 61 total teams either on or within one of actual seed line
  • Bracket Matrix score: 347 –  topped 339 score in 2014

After much debate between Temple and BYU for the final spot on Sunday, I stayed with Temple based on its double-digit win over Kansas and slightly better overall record against the Top 100.  But I have no problem with BYU’s choice; it was a coin flip, and the Cougars certainly had advantages based on other metrics.  Although UCLA was considered, and finished among my First Five OUT, I eliminated the Bruins from final consideration by Saturday night.

While the numbers turned out well, Bracketville remains a labor of love.  It allows me the opportunity to share a passion for college basketball and the NCAA tournament.  It allows me the opportunity to interact with fellow hoop-heads.  And it has allowed me the great opportunity of working with a terrific team at College Basketball Talk on NBCSports.com.

Thank you for your interest and support.  I would love to create another preseason fan bracket next fall.  Let me know if you want to participate.  Perhaps one of these years, we’ll try to form a Fan Committee the week before Selection Sunday.  I’ll be posting some picks and Bracket Bits again soon.  The Madness is almost here.
