2/19 Bracket

Kentucky moves up to the #3 overall seed, while Tennessee drops to #4.  ‘Duke West’ falls to #5 overall, but stays in the West.

At the bottom of the bracket…it remains ugly.

*A couple home wins for Nebraska makes their resume look a little better, especially with high NET/KenPom rankings.

*UCF is a tough one, as they don’t have a Quad 1 win.  They’ll get their chance, as they travel to Cincy, Houston and Temple in the final weeks of the regular season.

*I dropped Butler out because their best win is on a neutral floor against Florida, which they then followed up by getting blown out in Gainesville.  If I have Florida out, then Butler should be out at this point too.  Florida is a lot closer after winning at Bama this weekend.

*Keep an eye out for Houston and LSU, who I have at 9 and 10, overall.  With the Nick Ward injury, one could slide up to the 2 line.
