Updated seed list 3/8/18 2:15am

Championship week Wednesday is finished and not a whole lot of movement on the bubble. As I do every year on Wednesday and then again on Saturday I look at the bubble and make sure that I believe I have selected correctly. I did this tonight and by no surprise these resumes are so entirely similar it is a difficult choice. I was sure that Syracuse would be on the outside, however I leave them in my bracket for now, due to the quality of their road wins and their amazing Non conference strength of schedule. Arizona State is still in the field FOR NOW. The currently hold an RPI in the 80’s which would set a record for the highest ever RPI to be taken in the field as an at-large. However, Notre Dame is primed to take their spot with a good showing against Duke tomorrow. I’m going to work more on the scrubbing process tomorrow with the Auto Bids. As of right now, I do not believe MTSU can survive a bad loss, I will re-evaluate them as an at-large Friday evening, as long as the make the championship. As always, see how I match up or how other bracketologists have your team at http://www.bracketmatrix.com.
