One Stop/Bracket Updates

One Stop Shop is updated through last night's games.

Also, today's bracket contains the same 65 teams as Wednesday's, but the seeds have shifted a bit.

I'll do my best to update the OSS a few times this weekend as games are completed, but I will be traveling, so I could get behind a bit.

Enjoy a weekend of very important hoops.

Last Night's GOI
--at Georgia Tech 84, North Carolina 77. This one goes a long way for GT. A win over BC on Sunday would likely do the trick. Heels' 1-seed hopes are fading a bit.
--at Utah State 79, Nevada 77. Now, Aggies need a deep run in the WAC Tourney to make it interesting.
--at Virginia 69, Virginia Tech 56. Cavs can lock up the ACC regular season title with a win at Wake this weekend.
--at Washington 85, Southern Cal 70. USC missed their chance to LOCK it up.
--UCLA 53, at Washington State 45. Ladies and gents, your 2007 Pac-10 regular season champs.
See the OSS for these tourney game results:
--Atlantic Sun quarterfinals.
--Big South semifinals.
--Missouri Valley first round.
--Northeast quarterfinals.
--Southern quarterfinals.

Weekend Forecast
Tonight's Tourney Action (see the OSS)
--America East first round.
--Atlantic Sun semifinals.
--Colonial quarterfinals.
--Horizon second round.
--Metro-Atlantic first round.
--Missouri Valley quarterfinals. Creighton and Missouri State both need to cash in their first round games to ensure "good Bubble" status.
--Ohio Valley semifinals.
--Southern semifinals.
--West Coast first round.
--Oklahoma State at Baylor. Must win for Cowboys.
--Tennessee at Georgia. Dawgs are all but dead; Vols need a road win to help seeding.
--Illinois at Iowa. Illini cannot afford to gamble with a loss.
--Texas Tech at Iowa State. Tech is in the same boat as Illinois--hanging onto the bottom of the bracket.
--Oklahoma at Kansas State. K-State is nearing must win territory if they are not there already.
--Pittsburgh at Marquette. Gold/Warriors/Eagles seed is in freefall.
--Ohio State at Michigan. Big chance for the Wolverines to make one final push.
--Auburn at Mississippi. It seems everyone is just trying to get to .500 in the SEC West.
--New Mexico State at Nevada. Aggies are a real long shot, but a win here would keep the door ajar.
--Arizona at Stanford. Cardinal could use a big win to boost them to a sweat-free SelSun.
--Missouri at Texas A&M. Tigers would have to win this one and make a Big XII Tourney run.
--Fresno State at Utah State. Aggies need to win a few in a row to get a serious look.
--Syracuse at Villanova. Both in decent shape, but the winner of this one likely will not sweat on SelSun.
--Michigan State at Wisconsin. Wisconsin can strengthen its grip on a 1-seed; Sparty can likely stay above the 8/9 game with a win here.
