College Basketball Bracket 3/9/16

Bracket for games through 3/8/16; bracket seeding for use in the Bracket Matrix.

Autobids in bold.

There will be lots of movement around the bubble over the next couple days. Some teams are currently in because their tournament started early (looking at you, Florida St) and will fall back out if they don’t advance far enough. Others have slightly dropped due to not yet starting their tournament. Oklahoma, for example, will climb with a few wins this week, but the 3 line is appropriate if they drop an early game.

St Mary’s loss to Gonzaga last night very likely ended their tournament chances. They are just barely out, but have no more games remaining to vault themselves up; must rely on others ahead of them losing (and nobody behind them jumping up). Valpo is too far back to get an at-large, Monmouth is even further back.

The teams I have at the 7 line or better are going to stay in regardless of an early loss. The further down the bracket, the more important it is to make a deep run in the tournament. Teams currently below the Next Four Out are going to need an autobid to be comfortably in the field.

Conference tournaments starting today: A10, Big East, Big Ten, Big XII, Mountain West, Pac12, and SEC.

Autobid to be awarded today: Patriot (Lehigh vs Holy Cross)
