WED 3/13: MTSU lost Sunday night in the Sun Belt semifinals. That is a really bad loss for the Blue Raiders, and I have them out of the tournament because of it. Today is a big day for the bubble teams. I have Cincinnati, Colorado, Villanova, and Boise St all in the field of 68, but all need to win their games today. Especially Boise State, who plays San Diego State tonight. I also have Providence, Arizona State, and Stanford out of the field. All three of those schools play today and must win.

Every year I try to correctly predict who will make it into the tournament. I will give you my final predictions on Sunday before the selection show. But until then, I will provide a daily update on who I feel would make it at this moment. In the last five years I’ve missed 1, 1, 0, 2, and 1. So here we go:
