Top of the bracket stable, but plenty of movement below

Today's bracket features very little change at the top.  The top eight teams are the same, despite Indiana losing at home to Wisconsin on Tuesday night.

However, the Badgers have moved way up.  They now rank in the top 25 and are up five seed lines from Monday.

The biggest mover in the other direction is Wyoming, which started 13-0, now has lost two of three, including a particularly ugly loss at Fresno State Wednesday night, and fell from a No. 8 seed to out of the bracket entirely.

The Cowboys' profile is weak, but perhaps not weak enough to be entirely excluded on its own demerits.  However, leading scorer Luke Martinez is suspended indefinitely and not likely to be coming back anytime soon.  Wyoming is clearly not the same without him. 

Wyoming isn't the only team to drop out.  St. Mary's guard Matthew Dellavedova shot BYU out of the bracket, and just missed putting the Gaels in.

Charlotte dropped out as well, a victim of Maryland jumping in after the Terps' big win over North Carolina State , which has a long and storied history of not being able to stand success.  The Wolfpack has now lost 19 of the last 20 games it played following a win over Duke or North Carolina.

The next bracket comes out Monday.
