March 8 – Bracket Update

Last Four In: Indiana, Illinois, Texas, BYU

On the Doorstep: Miami, Temple, UCLA, Texas A&M, Tulsa

All of these teams are so close that wins in their respective conference tournaments are going to be essential to make the tournament.  A spot could also be stolen by Illinois State today. UCLA dropped out because their best win is over Utah, who continues to show that it is just not a good basketball team.

The only game with real bubble implications (other than the MVC championship) today is Tulsa at SMU.  With a loss, Tulsa will need to win the American tournament.
