Daily Bracketology: Sunday

    
March 9th, 2008

Another day, another daily Field of 65. This is a field based on how the tourney looks "as of this moment." For one-bid leagues, I simply include the conference leader at the time of publishing. In case of ties, I use my projected winner.

 

Arrows indicate a team that moved up or down based on last night's performance. (Just because a team won or lost doesn't necessarily mean they'll move substantially.)

 

Note on Sunday's Movement: As always on a Sunday, there's arrows scattered across the board as dozens of tournament teams were in action. At the top, UNC moves past Tennessee by beating Duke and will no doubt be the top seed according to other projections. Losses by Stanford, Vandy, and Marquette drop each of them down a seed.. allowing idle UCONN, Indiana, and Butler all to jump up.  Arizona falls all the way to a 10 as they finish their Pac-10 season with an 8-10 record.

 

Finally, it's important to note that although you might not be reading this until after early Sunday games are complete.. this does not take into account any Sunday results.
