News And Notes...

Well, that's it. Another season is in the books. The top seeds are locked in. Arizona winning the Pac Tourney bumps up the Zags. Now we will see if they can be the first top seed to lose to a 16 seed. They came close once before. Unfortunately, once again, Duke will probably be handed the easy Zaga bracket as we predict. (click here) The Midwest is stacked and will be the toughest region for any team to survive.

On to the bubble. There were no busters this season from the conference tourneys. Vanderbilt getting in with 15 losses is an unfortunate situation. But they did have the best OOC SOS of any team. Rhode Island gets the nod over Illinois State but can also win their way in today. And finally there is Syracuse. It will be a sad day indeed if this team with an 84 RPI is selected based on the teams and coaches name. There just is no place for it.
