Butler beat UW Milwaukee for the automatic bid in the Horizon League, and also removed the possibility of being an at-large. That's one less team for the bubblers to contend with. Oakland and UA Little Rock also clinched berths. Villanova's late season malaise continued with a loss to USF, and further down the bracket it goes. At least the Wildcats are done losing for now.

Bracket note: Bracket projections are always based on "as if the tournament started today." I am not predicting how teams will finish the season. The conference "champion" is the team with the fewest conference losses, with ties broken by RPI. I am not predicting that team will win the league. It is just the current leader. As conference tournament seeding gets determined, the leader will be the highest remaining seed in the conference tournament.
