NCAA Tournament Projections As of March 11

Some bracket notes as we are only two days away from Selection Sunday:

• The bubble is very difficult right now. You have teams who have completely different resumes and records.
• Wake Forest was dropped out of the field and Indiana added with their win over Michigan.
• Nothing is settled, and from now until the final bracket is posted Sunday, a full “scrub” of the teams will take place. Teams out of the field could be added back in when the microscope is put on these teams.
• VCU, BYU and Xavier are extremely close right now. The Musketeers could easily be moved out of the field in favor of one of these two.
• There are several teams that can play their way into the at-large field. The top candidates are VCU, Texas A+M, Virginia Tech, Dayton and Oklahoma.

LAST FOUR IN: Xavier, Notre Dame, Indiana, SMU
FIRST FOUR OUT: VCU, Wake Forest, BYU, Oklahoma
NEXT FOUR OUT: Dayton, Virginia Tech, Colorado, Texas A&M
