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…

How safe is Gonzaga after last night’s win? Where will Delaware be seeded come Sunday?
Mar 10, 2014, 8:30 AM EST
Wichita State is unbeaten, but would they get the nod over the Gators when Selection Sunday rolls around?

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,…

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…

This Valentine’s Day some teams are feeling the love more than others. If you’re Colorado State, Baylor, Richmond, Washington State, and Wichita State you are the final invitees to this week’s Dance. Congratulations. For now. Our bubble remains as big as ever. We’re also seeing a late push by Butler and even Gonzaga to get…

Conference play is moving forward – a good chance to see how teams fare in hostile environments and true road games. No changes on the top line for the latest Bracket Projection – Duke, Ohio State, Kansas, and Syracuse. We do have one newcomer to the two-line: Purdue replaces Kentucky. There is a record number of Big…

No surprise that Duke is the No. 1 overall seed in our first in-season bracket projection. The Blue Devils are joined on the top line by Ohio State, Pittsburgh, and Kansas. A strong group of No. 2 seeds includes Michigan State, Kansas State, Georgetown and Connecticut. Few teams have elevated their outlook more than the…
