Sunday Bracket

Texas Tech’s Tenuous Spot on the Three Line

Kansas went into Lubbock and won a thriller over Texas Tech. The result sends Kansas to three overall on the one line and sends Texas Tech down to the 12th overall seed, perilously close to dropping to a four. Here is the team sheet:

There are 11 Quadrant 1/2 wins, sure, but only two of those are against current top five seeds. And that non-conference strength of schedule (or lack thereof) will continue to haunt the Red Raiders through Selection Sunday. A two seed is still possible if they win out, but a one seed is now out of the picture.

Virginia Tech’s Costly Home Loss

The Hokies weren’t in a position to lock a bid merely by beating Louisville at home, but they would’ve all but ensured they would get their name called on Selection Sunday. Instead, some clutch three point shooting by the Cardinals sends the Hokies down to a spot on the bubble with a home game against Duke and road game against Miami left to go. One of the most interesting selections a couple weeks from now will revolve around the Hokies, including their win at Virginia and their poor out of conference schedule, if they fail to win one of those two and/or go on a strong run in the ACC Tournament.
