NCAA Tournament Round 1 System and Poll Comparison

After round 1 of the NCAA Tournament, here is an update of the system and poll comparison I posted for day 1.

System/PollPointsPoint Lost
Coaches27-2
RPI25-4
Schmidt Computer25-6
Sagarin25-6
AP24-4
Seeds22-4
Vegas19-2

The coaches poll continues to lead, but things tighten up behind them as the three systems are in a virtual tie.  It is interesting how much better the coaches are doing than the AP.

The tournament committee continues to trail but isn't the worst in the future points lost category so perhaps there is hope for a come back.

And with the Vegas picks added, there is a new last place way back at only 19.  But with only 2 points already lost in the next round (Georgetown), there is still hope.

Another update after today's games.

Note: Updated to include Vegas picks as well.
