College Basketball Bracket 3/8/16

Bracket for games through 3/7/16; bracket seeding for use in the Bracket Matrix.

Autobids in bold.

I’m still trying to work out some inconsistencies in my formulas. I don’t like having two Big East 1 seeds (really the entire Big East is being slightly overseeded in this bracket), nor do I see Florida as a tournament team just yet, though Florida can certainly play their way in even without an auto bid. Most of these issues will work themselves out prior to Selection Sunday, but my goal is to build an accurate bracket that is entirely data-generated and I sense that there’s still some work left to do to achieve that.
