Sunday Bracket

Some big bracket moves this week:

-Trae Young is the rare freshman who exceeds the hype. After winning at Wichita State, it’s time for OU to be mentioned as a Big XII title contender and for Young to be mentioned as a Wooden POY candidate.  They are up to a three.

-Syracuse got an overtime win to knock rival Georgetown from the unbeaten ranks.  For the one-loss Orange, they still find themselves back at a six seed after failing to win any Tier One games (falling in Miami to Kansas in their only Tier 1 or 2 game).

-Baylor is still down at an eight seed.  Frankly, they are lucky to be in that position. A win over Creighton is about the only thing they have going for them right now.

-Kansas doesn’t look like a two seed, but a one point victory over Nebraska on the road gives them a third Tier 1 win.  If they land both Preston and De Sousa onto the roster, they’ll be a threat to gain a one seed. If they don’t, this could be KU’s worst seed since 2000 (the last time they weren’t a top four seed).
