Mar 16, 2014, 5:24 PM EST
It’s time to move past bracket projections and get ready for March Madness. In our final look, Florida stands above the crowd as the overall No. 1 seed. Arizona, Wichita State, and Michigan close out the top line. Virginia may land atop the East Region. Same for Villanova. It’s been a great race. Enjoy the…

If you’ve ever watched The Masters golf tournament in early April, they refer to Saturday as Moving Day. It’s the day when golfers position themselves for a run at the Green Jacket. In the world of college hoops, today and tomorrow are like Moving Day at selection headquarters. Teams on the proverbial NCAA tournament bubble…

Going to be a busy week for all the bubble teams, too.
Mar 3, 2014, 8:11 AM EST
We’re two weeks from Selection Sunday and we’ve got a long way to go. Championship Week is going to be fun and tension-filled. As this juncture, as many as 15 at-large spots remain uncertain. That’s a high number entering March. Here’s what we do know. Barring an unexpected turn of events, Florida and Arizona will be No.…

It was quite a night for a couple of bubble teams. With March knocking on the door, road wins for Arkansas and Oregon pushed the Razorbacks and Ducks into the Field of 68 – they are paired against each other in a First Four matchup in Dayton. Missouri and Minnesota are the other at-large participants…

Florida has not lost a college basketball game in almost three months. Only undefeated Wichita State owns a longer streak. So it’s no surprise that both the Gators and Shockers remain No. 1 seeds in today’s bracket. Given back-to-back losses by Syracuse, it’s also not surprising to find Florida as the top overall seed with…

The University of Dayton is home to the First Four participants of March Madness. Even if the Dayton Flyers are one of those teams. Today’s bracket update includes this very scenario, as the Flyers are the final at-large team in the projected Field of 68. They are matched against Tennessee in one First Four pairing;…

Here’s a polite way of summarizing the current NCAA Tournament bubble picture: if you don’t like today’s First Four match-ups, wait for the next bracket on Friday. Today’s update finds a couple of Saints marching into Dayton: Saint Joseph’s and St. John’s. They are joined by BYU – fresh off a victory at Saint Mary’s…

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, the February 14 bracket projection offers special gifts to Wichita State and West Virginia. After chasing the top line for a month or so, Wichita State holds the final No. 1 seed (Midwest) in today’s bracket. And West Virginia has the distinction of being today’s final team IN the…
Feb 10, 2014, 11:57 AM EST
Alongside Syracuse, Wichita State is one of two unbeaten teams in NCAA Division I men’s basketball. The Shockers’ resume speaks for itself – a Top 10 RPI, Top 50 non-conference strength of schedule, and an 11-0 record away from home. Given WSU’s remaining Missouri Valley Conference schedule, it’s likely the Shockers will enter the MVC…

The bubble is much like a recent weather forecast for the Midwest or East Coast: unpredictable and generally less than welcoming. So instead of debating the final few teams IN our OUT in today’s bracket, let’s look at the No. 1 seed contenders. We have just over a month until Selection Sunday. Syracuse, Arizona, Kansas,…

With the Super Bowl behind us, it’s time to start focusing on March Madness. Given the action we’ve witness the past couple of weeks, the upcoming NCAA Tournament should be full of surprises. If you need any other evidence, check out the teams listed around the bubble in today’s bracket. They’re moving around faster than…

Fresh off a victory in East Lansing, the Michigan Wolverines continue to climb the seed list (s-curve). Entering action this week, the Wolverines own the top spot in the Big Ten and are building an impressive overall profile. Michigan has not lost since December 14 – a two-point setback to top-ranked Arizona in Ann Arbor.…

Since losing to San Diego State, the Kansas Jayhawks have put together a five-game surge that includes victories over its biggest competitors in the Big 12 conference – Oklahoma, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Iowa State, and Baylor. Two of those (Oklahoma, Iowa State) were on the road. Add in victories over Duke and New Mexico…
Jan 14, 2014, 6:39 PM EST
Kansas is among the top movers in this week’s bracket projection. The reasons are pretty clear: two quality road wins and an overall schedule ranked No. 1 in the nation. Those types of statistics always play well on Selection Sunday. In the span of a week, the Jayhawks won road games at Oklahoma and Iowa…
Jan 6, 2014, 5:59 PM EST
The countdown to March Madness has officially arrived. We begin the trek toward Selection Sunday with Arizona and Syracuse as the top two seeds in the opening bracket of 2014. Joining the Wildcats and Orange on the top line … two teams from the Big Ten: Wisconsin and Michigan State. Villanova and Ohio State are…

The Road to the Final Four is about to begin, and a host of familiar names sit atop our preseason bracket projection. Reigning NCAA champion Louisville opens as the top overall seed in the Midwest Region, which again goes through nearby Indianapolis. The Cardinals are followed by Michigan State (East), Kentucky (South), and Kansas (West)…
Mar 17, 2013, 5:00 PM EST
Depending on your viewpoint, it’s a 50-50 call on whether Indiana or Louisville will be the No. 1 overall seed and thus the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region. Early this morning, we had Indiana in that spot. After a few more hours to think about it, the Hoosiers stay put. An outright regular-season title in…
