Dead or Alive 3/9
Thirteen more teams were eliminated on Monday. Now 143 total are dead and 208 are still alive. Still no ZOMBIE teams and only one LOCK. That will end starting Tuesday. Here are the teams that passed away on Monday...
MEAC - Savannah State, Morgan State
MAC - Northern Illinois, Miami (OH), Ohio, Ball State
COLONIAL - William & Mary
SOUTHERN - Furman
SUMMIT - South Dakota, Oral Roberts
WEST COAST - Pepperdine, Portland
MAAC - Iona
As mentioned earlier, three more AUTO bids were handed out on Monday. Northeastern ended William & Mary's bid for their first dance ever. Wofford is good, they might be able to win a game in the tourney. And Manhattan pulled off a pretty big upset over Iona. Choke job by the Gaels.
COLONIAL - Northeastern
SOUTHERN - Wofford
MAAC - Manhattan
Two more conferences start their tourneys on Tuesday. I'll take North Carolina in the ACC. I just think they are right there. They are getting better and they can score. If they get hot, watch out. The SWAC should be a Texas Southern walkthrough. They won at Michigan State and at Kansas State this year, they can play well in big games.
Four more teams will earn their way into the dance on Tuesday. The Horizon has a matchup of two very underwhelming teams. I think Green Bay is worse than Valpo, so I'll take Valpo. St. Francis, NY is looking for their first tourney ever, hopefully they win. The Summit will be won by a state school from Dakota, obviously. And Gonzaga will dominate again and cement their two seed.
Now only 6 more days of hoops before the brackets are revealed. Enjoy.
