The decision to move UNC to the 1 line wasn’t easy, I really like how Louisville has looked. However, it was just one of those times where I wondered, “If it were Selection Sunday, who does my gut think the committee would pick?” I feel it would be UNC. However, one loss either way between the two would solidify my choice between those two for the final one seed.
Minnesota continues to look more like a solid tournament team and less like a bubble team. With a top 25 RPI, look for the question on selection Sunday for the Golden Gophers not to be “Are we playing?” but rather “Who are we playing?” Right now, I would think they’d see Kansas St. in the Midwest regional.
As Syracuse loses to GA Tech, Marquette comes back into the bracket. This is obviously just for now, the bubble will change plenty in the next 20 days.
