  • Lots of movement after an interesting night of basketball.  Michigan had the most surprising loss, one that has derailed their quest for a #1 seed.  They could still sweep Michigan State and Indiana at home to close the regular season, which would get them back in the discussion entering the Big 10 tournament.
  • Arizona's loss to USC was less surprising, but they are now hanging onto a thread on the 3-line.  The disheartening part of this from a bracketing standpoint is that it brings San Jose all that much closer to taking up 2 of the 4 spots on the 4-line and making the seeding of the First Round games all the more difficult.
  • Wichita State potentially got their last mulligan.  The winner Saturday in their game with Creighton is a lock, while the loser has to at least win one in "Arch Madness".
  • Thursday's best game is Duke at Virginia.  The Cavaliers need this one to improve their RPI and get a little more comfortable come Selection Sunday.  The only other game I find interesting is whether Gonzaga can avoid a slip-up in Provo against BYU.
