March 15 (AM) – Bracket Update

One final bracket will be posted later today.  UConn has a chance to steal a final bid, while the other games today are more relevant for seeding purposes.  With Wyoming winning last night, I believe a UConn W knocks a fourth Mountain West (11th rated conference) team from the tournament.

In addition, after the committee chair specifically referenced Murray State and its undefeated conference record during an interview yesterday, I would not be surprised if the Racers get the nod over someone like Ole Miss or Colorado St.
