Seton Hall hasn't had a great season by any stretch, but nobody has done more damage to the tournament prospects of other Big East teams than the Pirates.

On Thursday, Villanova was the victim. Seton Hall knocked off the Wildcats on a jumper at the horn to severely damage Villanova's chances of becoming a No. 1 seed. I have updated the bracket to put Wisconsin in that spot for now.

The Pirates swept Georgetown and Xavier in the regular season. Those losses are a big reason why the Hoyas are out of the NCAA tournament and the Musketeers are in doubt.

Thursday's win by the Hall also hurts the Providence-St. John's winner because that team will be deprived of the opportunity to get the kind of quality win that could move them into the bracket for good.
