- I'll start with the "Bubble", where Indiana State, St. John's and Temple all had big wins last night and strengthened my Field of 68 by solidifying their shaky positioning for the moment. BYU now currently sits as the weak link, but there is not much behind them threatening at this moment other than conference foe St. Mary's.
- What the heck was that Kansas?
- Miami, FL is undefeated with both Reggie Johnson and Durand Scott in the line-up and now has a #1 seed to show for it. The way this season has gone, the spot will be short-lived, but who would have ever thought Miami, FL and #1 seed would be said in concert.
- Creighton, Wichita State and UNLV have hit the skids and need to right the ship before the goodwill they built up early in the season is completely squandered.
