College Basketball Bracket 3/10/16

Bracket for games through 3/9/16; bracket seeding for use in the Bracket Matrix.

The losses by Syracuse and Florida St likely ended both of their chances to earn a bid. Texas Tech is now dangerously close to dropping out after a terrible loss to TCU. USC is finally in the field, but has a difficult game tonight with Utah; a win would lock up their bid but a loss keeps them on the bubble.

Florida, Georgia, and Michigan all start their chases for bids today, each likely needing multiple wins to get in the field. My data is a lot more optimistic about Georgia than any other brackets I’ve seen; perhaps they are just barely out on everyone else’s brackets too?

Oklahoma begins their pursuit of a top seed today against an Iowa St team where a win would certainly move the Sooners up a line on the bracket. Three of the 1 seeds are looking like they’ll be represented by the ACC, Big East, and Big 12, with the 4th open for Michigan St if they can win their tournament, or perhaps two bids for one of the aforementioned conferences. Oregon and Utah aren’t out of that race, but neither really feels like a 1 seed just yet.

No more autobids will be handed out until Saturday when 14 are up for grabs. The remaining 5 (American, A10, Big Ten, SEC, and Sun Belt) wait until Sunday.

Autobids in bold.
