Today's bracket reflects a switch in the Southern Florida representation in the field. South Florida is in after beating Louisville, while Miami falls out after losing for the second time this season to NC State.
Northwestern almost got the big win tonight, but its comeback effort against Ohio State fell just short. As a result, the Cats find themselves in the First Four in the current projection.
Colorado State and Cincinnati crept up a little after big wins. The Rams knocked off UNLV at home. The Rams always win at home. It's away from home that they have problems.
The Bearcats steamrolled Marquette for its sixth top 50 RPI win and seventh against the top 100. All those wins have come in conference play, where they are 11-6.
Dayton may have put the final nail in its coffin with a loss at Richmond. Conference mate St. Joe's also hurt themselves with an overtime loss at St. Bonaventure.
