2/26 BRACKET

Yesterday produced a lot of changes in the bracket.

-Noticeably, Gonzaga falls off the one line following a shocking home loss to BYU. They are highly unlikely to return, and have fallen all the way to a three.

-Northwestern simply isn’t winning games, so they have dropped all the way to the First Four.  They will probably need one of their last two to make it.

-UCLA barely overtakes Arizona for a three. Remember, Arizona already won at UCLA, so the Bruins won’t get special treatment just for winning the second game between the two. Don’t get too hung up on Arizona’s four, either. They are my top four and could climb to a two quite easily.

-Butler is up to a two.  It’s amazing what a sweep of Villanova can do.

-Cal climbs back into the field. They don’t have an at-large quality resume, but someone has to be in.
