After the Cincinnati-SMU game is complete, I will post my final bracket projection.
The biggest development is Rhode Island’s victory in the A-10 Tournament. Previously, they were fighting amongst Syracuse, Kansas St, USC and possibly a few others for one of the last at-large spots in the field. By winning today, they made it impossible for the committee to exclude them from the tournament.
Their win is bad news for Syracuse, who will be falling out of my projected bracket in the update to be posted later. I still see it as a coin flip as to whether or not they make the field. They have the most big wins amongst the group, but the most bad losses as well. It is going to be close between them and other teams right around the cut line.
