The early games on Selection Sunday have caused some changes to the bracket. Most notably, Richmond's win over Davidson in the Atlantic 10 Tournament final put the Spiders into the field and knocked Xavier out of my bracket. Richmond is a No. 13 seed in my bracket.
The new "Last Four In" are Indiana, San Francisco, Notre Dame and Michigan.
Yes, Michigan. While I do not believe metrics make decisions for the committee, it may be hard to ignore the combination of the strength of Michigan's schedule, the results and the metrics in spite of Michigan's record. Each of the metrics on the team sheets would choose the Wolverines as an at-large team if they did make the decision
The "First Four Out" are BYU, Xavier, Rutgers and SMU.
Tennessee won the SEC Tournament over Texas A&M. I still have the Aggies in the bracket beyond the "Last Four In." The Volunteers have moved up to a No. 2 seed. That line has three SEC teams, which has made bracketing down the bracket a little more challenging.
The top seeds in the bracket are now set, I believe. Gonzaga should be the overall No. 1 on Selection Sunday, followed by Pac-12 champion Arizona, Big 12 champion Kansas and reigning national champion Baylor.

Purdue is still the fourth No. 2 seed and likely will be win or lose against Iowa in the Big Ten Tournament Final.
I do not expect the Houston-Memphis in the AAC Tournament final game to impact the bracket either.
One more new team to the bracket is Yale, which beat Princeton to the win the Ivy League championship and automatic bid.
