Hey all, with less than two weeks to go until Selection Sunday, I’m going to start doing an update every day. Most of these updates will be pretty incremental, but I’d like for everybody to have the best up-to-date information at all times.

Creighton is back in, having been in the First Four Out yesterday and now owners of a big road win over Marquette. That pushes Alabama to the wrong side of the bubble. The Bluejays are an interesting case – a team with 13 losses, but whose worst loss is probably to Seton Hall at home? (They did lose at Xavier, but it’s much easier to lose away from home.) They are definitely a team to watch for on Selection Sunday to get a good mindset into what the committee thought was important this year.

Other changes today see Maryland drop down to the 7 line after their loss to Michigan and Arizona State leaping out of the First Four after their win over Oregon State.

Last Four Byes: Ole Miss, Clemson, Minnesota, Arizona State
Last Four In: St Mary’s, St John’s, Creighton, NC State
First Four Out: Alabama, Indiana, Nebraska, Temple
Next Four Out: Seton Hall, Oregon, Dayton, Belmont

Bids by conference:
ACC 9, Big XII/Big Ten 8, SEC 7, Big East 4, AAC 3, Pac-12/WCC/MWC 2
