Two new teams in the bracket today – on the at-large side, the change from Tuesday’s bracket has been reverted after Arizona State’s win last night, as they jump back in. Davidson’s on the outside looking in yet again. In AQ news, NEC favorites Wagner have been supplanted by Sacred Heart, as BracketBot estimates they would beat the Wagner Seahawks 50.4% of the time. That’s quite a slim margin, and with the two teams tied at the top of the conference standings (along with Robert Morris) that might flip several more times as things change.
