Bracket Update 2/11

The bottom was quite difficult in today's bracket. I took teams like Dayton, UMass, West Virginia, Syracuse, UNLV, and Florida over teams like NC State, Arizona State, Oregon, Illinois State, Houston, Creighton, Seton Hall, and Cal.

With BracketBusters tracking behind us, we might take a look at the Lockbox tomorrow instead of Wednesday. Several teams have moved into "virtual lock" territory.

Tonight's GOI
--Villanova at Georgetown. Nova probably needs this one to keep hope alive. They cannot afford to drop to 4-7 in the league. And, they will have to deal with an angry Hoya team in DC.
--Utah State at Nevada. If the Pack has any hope of staying in the conference title race, they must win here.
--Kansas at Texas. Did someone say, "Big Monday?"
