Dead or Alive 3/11
Biggest casualty number of the year occurred on Wednesday. Lost a total of 33 teams and gained out AUTO bid. Still only BYU as the one ZOMBIE. Now 184 dead and only 167 alive. Here is who left us on Wednesday...
ACC - Clemson, Boston College, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech
CONFERENCE USA - UT San Antonio, Charlotte, Marshall, North Texas
PAC 12 - Washington State, Arizona State, Oregon State, Washington
MOUNTAIN WEST - New Mexico, Nevada
SWAC - Mississippi Valley State, Alcorn State
BIG TEN - Nebraska, Rutgers
MEAC - Coppin State, South Carolina State
SOUTHLAND - Southeast Louisiana, Nicholls State
MAC - Bowling Green, Western Michigan
ATLANTIC 10 - George Mason, St. Louis
BIG EAST - Seton Hall, DePaul
BIG 12 - Kansas State, Texas Tech
SEC - Mississippi State, Missouri
PATRIOT - American
Only one AUTO bid handed out on Wednesday. Lafayette gets it done in the Patriot over American. They look like an easy out in the tourney next week.
PATRIOT - Lafayette
No Championship games on Thursday.
The final four conferences tip off on Thursday. In the American I like the Owls of Temple. Do I really think they'll win? No, but I'm rooting for them. Big Sky is another wide open tourney, I'll take the Grizz of Montana. The Big West has a few favorites, but I'm going with the Rainbow Warriors of Hawaii. They look good this year. I hope UL Lafayette wins the Sun Belt so everyone can be confused on their brackets.
Now only four days of basketball left before the brackets are revealed. Almost there. Enjoy.
