Bracket Update 2/16

Bracket is up.

There were some tough decisions to be made at the bottom today and a lot of teams in the mix. I opted for these teams

Kentucky, Florida, UNLV, Southern Cal, Virginia Tech, Cincinnati, Miami-FL

over this group:

San Diego State, Michigan, Kansas State, Georgetown, St. Mary's, Northwestern, Penn State, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Temple, Providence, Maryland

It's not easy at the bottom right now. It will sort itself out to some degree in the last couple of weeks.

Multi-Bid Conference Breakdown
Big East (8): UConn, Pitt, Louisville, Villanova, Marquette, Syracuse, West Virginia, Cincinnati
ACC (8): North Carolina, Duke, Clemson, Wake Forest, Florida State, Virginia Tech, Boston College, Miami-FL
Big Ten (6): Michigan State, Illinois, Ohio State, Purdue, Minnesota, Wisconsin
Pac-10 (6): Washington, UCLA, California, Arizona State, Arizona, Southern Cal
SEC (5): LSU, Tennessee, South Carolina, Florida, Kentucky
Big XII (4): Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Missouri
Mountain West (3): Utah, BYU, UNLV
Atlantic 10 (2): Xavier, Dayton

Tonight's GOI
--Pitt at UConn. Titanic game with titanic implications.
--Texas at Texas A&M. Big 12 Bubble Boys.
--East Tenn State at Lipscomb. ETSU is scrapping for a league title (just one back), but Lipscomb has put together three very impressive games in a row.
