-Wisconsin barely sneaks into the last 1 seed with the quality of its wins and Villanova's loss to Seton Hall
-UConn bumps up to a 5 with it's win over Memphis; Oklahoma drops to take that 6 seed after their loss to Baylor
-Baylor moves up to the last 7, sliding Memphis to the first 8
-Stanford bumps to a 9 thanks to their win over Arizona St. plus Iowa's bewildering loss to Northwestern. The Hawkeyes fall to the 10 line
-Saint Joseph's moves to a 10 after Cal's loss to Colorado
-Xavier and Pitt move out of the play-in round with middling wins and Cal/SMU's losses, who drop into that round
-Arkansas falls out of the bracket after a disastrous loss to South Carolina, moving FSU into the bracket following their harrowing win over Big Ten-bound Maryland
-Minnesota, Tennessee, and Providence climb closer to the field - Minnesota is the only one with a chance to move the needle tomorrow (playing Wisconsin), as Tennessee and Providence were robbed of chances to beat Arkansas and Villanova, respectively. Mizzou has a big chance against Florida; it remains to be seen if beating the #1 team would leap them all the way into the field based on what happens around them
-Western Michigan replaces Toledo for the time being (highest remaining MAC seed) as a 13 - this bumped Harvard to a 12
-Texas Southern moves into a 16 seed play-in game as they are the highest remaining seed in the SWAC tournament (not Alabama St.)
