What a game between Kansas and Baylor so far.  Kansas had led most of the way, but Baylor is on a comeback and trails by 3 with 3+ minutes left.

It appears that Bad Purdue has shown up today.

Providence was preseason #22 on Torvik and has worked their way back from #96 on December 20 to #35 now. If you only include games since December 20, they are #18 (almost exactly tied with Big Ten champion Maryland).

I had been hyping Maryland as my sleeper for the title behind Zaga/Kansas, but I really think Creighton may need more love in spite of mediocre defense. In this same timeframe, their offense has powered them to #6!!!

At halftime, undefeated San Diego State is down by 12 at home to 14-14 UNLV.

Go Rebels!

No undefeateds in college basketball! Not bad considering we've IIRC lost to them more than any two college basketball team have lost to each other the last seven years!!!

fun day watching college basketball.

BYU puts on a clinic in an upset over #2 Gonzaga.

Rhode Island losing a thriller to Dayton.

Arizona losing to Oregon in a wild finish.

And of course Kansas-Baylor living up to the billing.

Good job picking BYU, YE.  I really thought about it (especially given my home team bias) but chickened out in the end.

After thinking the bubble was stronger than the past couple years, it is now looking equally hideous.

Oklahoma, URI, Cincinnati, Stanford - pick your two teams that probably don't belong anyway. Maybe ETSU will let a bid be stolen.

Purdue, Mississippi State, and Georgetown (and South Carolina?) proved yesterday that they don't belong so UCLA may be the next most viable choice. I see banter that they may only need to win two of three given the teams. Unreal. Great coaching job, Mick Cronin. Coach circles around Sean Miller again next week!

I don't know what I'll do if USC loses today. Indiana and Xavier also don't have particularly kind remaining schedules, but they are 11th and 8th to last teams in. Someone's going to have to actively unseat them while the mid-majors at the cut line can't have yet another slip up.

Sprouts, do you think Memphis has any shot at an at-large bid at this point?

Easily with Houston the schedule and the lack of quality teams. I  put them 8th out this morning in the same area as SC/Bama/Ark but behind teams with quality wins that will surely falter down the stretch. There's so little gap in every resume after Stanford.

The problem is that they are dogs in three of the remaining four including by 9.5 at Houston. If they beat Wichita twice and win at SMU it will be extremely close but lean out. The game in Houston matters a ton.

I already had Creighton on the 2 seed line to start the day, but they were in the same tier at Hall, FSU, Nova and Louisville. No longer. This massacre is enough to convince me they belong in the Duke and Dayton tier (and likely much better than either of those teams).

WEEK 16 RESULTS

I went worst-to-first this week by being the only correct picker in three games (Indiana, Memphis, Missouri State) and made a dent in Sprouts's overall lead.

15 GeorgiaModerate
14 YE
13 Illiniwek
11 sjoyce,Sprouts
8 JGibson

The average score was 12.0, which is almost the worst of the season.

There were three unanimous picks, only one of which was correct!

Penn-Dartmouth (wrong)
Saint Louis-VCU
Delaware-Hofstra (wrong)

Games with a single dissenter (asterisk = dissenter was right):

Houston-Memphis (*)
Purdue-Michigan (*)
Loyola-Missouri State (*)
Kentucky-Florida
Texas Tech-Iowa State
Gonzaga-BYU (*)
Penn State-Indiana (*)
Wisconsin-Rutgers
Creighton-Butler

Overall standings:

245 Sprouts
238 GeorgiaModerate
229 Illiniwek
221 JGibson
214 sjoyce
178 YE
152 dfw
98 RINO Tom
36 Sunrise

Friday, February 28th
Wright State @ Northern Kentucky – 6pm — ESPNU
Texas State @ UT-Arlington – 8pm — ESPN2

Saturday, February 29th
#9 Penn State @ #20 Iowa – 11am – BTN
#8 Florida State @ Clemson – 1pm – ACCNX
Florida @ Tennessee – 1pm
Akron @ Buffalo – 1pm – ESPN3
#16 Seton Hall @ #19 Marquette – 1:30pm – FOX

Frankly think it’s kind of ridiculous that you can’t watch the #2 or the #4 team in the country (even if those are both gonna fall pretty rapidly after both lost) on national TV as each faces one of their best conference opponents, but I don’t make the rules

Sunday, March 1st
#15 Creighton @ St. John’s – 11am – FS1
Xavier @ Georgetown – 1pm – CBS
Saint Louis @ Rhode Island – 1pm – ESPNU

I've just now gotten around to setting up the spreadsheet (it's been one of those weeks), and noticed there are only 24 games on the list.

ETA: JGibson, you have a game with both teams picked.

I am completely dumbfounded how either Miller brother continues to hold a top 15 coaching job, especially Sean. Just a complete and total waste of player talent (well, talent he purchased) that is ruined by awful coaching yet again. Stone Gettings' transfer year wasted. Zeke's year is wasted. Nico Mannion had a chance to go to so many better programs. His Xavier teams were some of my favorites but I was such a naive child then. Arizona can and must do much better.

I've done amateur Bracketology for many years (since I was a kid).  Tomorrow, I'm going to do my initial projections and will post them here, if y'all like!

Florida St and Baylor both in big trouble on the road.  Kind of funny if Clemson beats Duke, Louisville and FSU, but has no chance at a bid unless they run the tourney (meaning probably beating two of them again).
