Bracketology: Auburn's time as a No. 1 seed was short-lived, much to Kansas' benefit
After becoming a No. 1 seed in the bracket on Friday, Auburn lost at South Carolina to drop back down.
Two No. 1 seeds lost on Saturday, although one was guaranteed to do so, resulting in a change at the top of my projected bracket.
Villanova beat Xavier for a second time this season and has now switched places again for the overall No. 2 seed. The Wildcats had that spot until they lost to Providence on Wednesday. The Musketeers remain on the top line as the No. 3 seed overall.
Auburn also lost on Saturday, just one day after moving up to the top line of the bracket. The Tigers lost at South Carolina and that, combined with a Kansas come-from-behind win over West Virginia, has put the Jayhawks up as the No. 4 overall seed. Kansas leads the nation with 10 quadrant 1 wins. Auburn did not fall far, dropping just one spot as the top 2-seed.
Texas Tech's loss at Baylor moved the Red Raiders down a seed, from a 2 to a 3. Cincinnati was the beneficiary of that move, sliding back up to the spot the committee had given the Bearcats a week ago. Cincinnati hosts Wichita State on Sunday.
There was some shuffling at the bottom of the bracket as well. St. Bonaventure, which beat Rhode Island on Friday and Syracuse have made their debuts in the field, while Louisville and Western Kentucky have dropped out. The Orange picked up its biggest win of the season so far at Miami.
