Lamar, Norfolk clinch; ACC, A-10, B1G, SEC finals set

The bracket has been updated again.  Lamar and Norfolk State have clinched their spots in the field.  Florida State beat Duke to earn a spot in the ACC final against North Carolina.  That loss likely ends the Blue Devils's top seed hopes.  Ohio State and Michigan State will face off with a possible No. 1 seed at stake.  In the SEC, Kentucky will play Vanderbilt tomorrow for the title.

The Commodores are back up as a seven seed after today's win.  Gonzaga dropped down to make room.  Further evaluation has Wichita State jumping up to a five seed, while Temple drops to a six.

In the Atlantic 10, Xavier finally beat Saint Louis and will face St. Bonaventure for the championship.  That is a possible bid-stealer game as the Bonnies will need to win to get into the tournament.  Xavier should be safe now either way.
