So, one of the most confusing and convoluted bubble years ever comes to a close. I honestly think I have no chance at getting the final few teams correct, as there isn't enough separation between them.
Mississippi State could have made things much easier had they won the SEC Tournament today. But a DeMarcus Cousins layup at the buzzer forced overtime, where John Wall was sublime. The Bulldogs, in my opinion, needed that win to get in, but the Committee may feel differently.
Ohio State sewed up a two seed with a win over Minnesota in the Big Ten final. The Gophers are in regardless, but again, the Committee may want to go a different route.
Duke won the ACC, but I doubt that won't be enough to wrest the top one seed from West Virginia.
Temple won the A-10 Tournament, and I have them solidly as a three seed.
Here's a final look at my projected field.
Temple (3), Richmond (6), Xavier (7)
Gonzaga (6), St. Mary's (10)
Utah State (12), New Mexico State (13)
One Bid Leagues (20): America East (Vermont), Atlantic Sun (ETSU), Big Sky (Montana), Big South (Winthrop), Big West (UC Santa Barbara), Colonial (Old Dominion), Conference USA (Houston), Horizon (Butler), Ivy (Cornell), Metro Atlantic (Siena), Mid-American (Ohio), Mid-Eastern (Morgan State), Missouri Valley (Northern Iowa), Northeast (Robert Morris), Ohio Valley (Murray State), Patriot (Lehigh), Southern (Wofford), Southland (Sam Houston State), Southwestern (Arkansas-Pine Bluff), Summit (Oakland), Sun Belt (North Texas)
