Seed List Update 3/9 post afternoon

The real bubble action and possible tournament moves come this evening. However, Cal hung on against Utah in the Pac-12. Michigan overcame its recent prediciments to defeat Illinois in the Big 10 2nd round. This eliminates Illinois from bubble contention and locks Michigan into the Big Dance. We also see Seton Hall lock in to their position with their victory over Marquette. I also believe that Marquette is pretty safe, we maybe locking them in later this evening depending on the results of some of the games tonight. I’m working on some more bubble stuff tonight, may have the bubble trimmed tonight and will start working on scrubbing. Happy Watching!!! Below is my schedule for updates:
