Just one change in the composition of Friday’s bracket – Arizona State exits after a loss to Stanford, and in their place is Davidson. That makes the A-10 a 2-bid league, for now. Davidson looks like a pretty good team – not a ton of marquee wins, the best being VCU at home last Saturday, but few embarrassments.
