Early Sunday Tidbits

A new bracket will be out later today but for now just some tidbits from yesterday

  • Jacksonville State wins the OVC auto-bid and will be slotted as a 16 seed
  • 3 more Bids go out today
    • Missouri Valley - 1. Illinois State vs 2 Wichita State  
    • Atlantic Sun - 1. FGCU vs 3. No. Florida
    • Big South - 1. Winthrop vs. 7. Campbell
  • The Horizon League gets turned upside down as both the 9 and 10 seed beat the 1 and 2 seed yesterday.  We will try not to remember the 43-41 game that caused this to happen.
  • By my calculations there are 5 slots still up for grabs.  I consider both Wichita and Illinois St locks unless its a clear blow out today.  Arkansas, Seton Hall, and Xavier all locked up a bid with wins yesterday.  That leaves the last 5 open spots to Wake, Marquette, Syracuse, Rhode Island, and Providence.  On the outside looking in are Kansas State, California, Vanderbilt, and Illinois.  These are not set in stone, even for today's bracket.  Its just where I feel they will land when the numbers get crunched.
