Seed List: Penn State stays alive, Auburn on Bubble

Elsewhere, Pittsburgh absorbed a Quad 3 loss at Notre Dame.  The Panthers finish at Miami.  A loss in Coral Gables would add a little extra angst to Pitt’s ACC tournament.

TCU held off Texas at home and looks in line to end up as a 4-5 seed with a healthy squad.  Xavier notched a solid road win at Providence to anchor their position.  Creighton took out some frustration on Georgetown.  And the bottom of the six seed line remains volatile and uncertain.
