Buckeye’s Bracket 3/8/16

Changes from yesterday:

  • Monmouth moves out of the tourney to the 6th team out with their loss in their conference tournament. Many consider them to be a contender for a play-in but at this point I just don’t think their resume cuts it.
  • Valparaiso moves out of the tourney and out of contention. A select few feel as though they deserve a spot. After all they only have six losses, a win at Oregon State and a top 40 RPI. But look again. After that win, they only have three more top 100 wins, all at home, all of which to teams that either aren’t in the tourney or in the case of Iona is in the tourney because they won their conference tournament.
  • UNC Wilmington replaces Hofstra
  • Some line shuffling in accordance with the given shuffling.
