Seed List Update 3/8/17 5pm

Again in the mid afternoon time slot, we turned to Brooklyn for the only real game of consequence on the NCAA or NIT tournament picture. Clemson was in a must win situation against Duke and they also were not able to accomplish this falling to the Blue Devils 79-72. This eliminates the Tigers from consideration for the NCAA tournament, however I will not drop them on the NIT seed line at this time. Like I said I was doing some seed scrubbing and I have been able to get lines 1-6 done, will continue to scrub throughout the night. I will have my next update in a few hours after the late afternoon games, which also has only one game of consequence as of this time, and that is in Vegas as Cal must defeat Oregon State to remain in consideration. Their resume can not take a loss like that to survive, this is more of a game where a loss will severely hurt the Bears, but will not move them up, only has an opportunity to move them down.
