Michigan State with strong statement moves to top line
Big Ten co-leader Michigan State's big win over arch-rival Michigan has moved Sparty to a No. 1 seed.
In the revolving door that is the top of the bracket, Michigan has fallen not only from the overall No. 1 but off the top line entirely after getting blown out at Michigan State. The Spartans have moved up, and fellow Big Ten co-leader Indiana is the new overall No. 1.
Miami and Duke are squeezed in between.

Florida and Gonzaga are on the two-line. The Gators are still lacking a quality win away from home. Gonzaga is clearly the king of its league after winning big at St. Mary's. The Zags are also 5-0 against the Big 12 (four of the wins vs. teams in the bracket), so they might be the first team ever to win two leagues.
At the bottom of the bracket, Indiana State dropped off following a loss to Missouri State. The Sycamores will either win the MVC tournament or get upset in the first round.
Temple dropped into the play-in game after losing at home to Duquesne. If they keep losing at home, they're not going to be around much longer.
Kentucky fell into the play-in game as well, in part because their win over Ole Miss isn't as good as it was a couple of weeks ago, and in part because the Wildcats are not expected to be as good after the loss of their best player to injury.
