-As predicted, the A-10 bubble imploded today, as SLU and Dayton both lost mandatory games and put themselves off the bubble. (SLU, I know you're young but show up; Dayton, grow up and hold onto a lead).
-Florida still ahead of Mississippi St. despite the head-to-head matchup today. Florida has MUCH better top-flight wins and overall has a better resume than the (pathetic) one Miss St. has to offer.
-William & Mary creeps closer to the bracket, but I don't think they can actually reach it based on a possibly-subsiding bubble and the fact that Seton Hall will always be ahead of them now.
-Georgetown shoots up the rankings probably a day late.
-From about the 7-8 seeds, the field just turns ugly. Hard to order those teams.
-Xavier is O SO CLOSE to a 5 seed. A win over Richmond would do it for sure, especially with Mich St. adding a tourney slip-up to it's already-weakish resume.
-San Diego St. will be in the field. Great, huge win over New Mexico.
-Same tip of the cap to Georgia Tech. Getting Maryland on a neutral floor was HUGE.
