Who the computer says should make the NCAA tournament 3/13 version

Here is the updated list of who the computer says should make the NCAA tournament using games played through Friday.  The change column is the change in ranking/rating since yesterday.  Those with an asterisk are those that are already in or projected to be the conference representative.

The last 4 at-large in would presently be San Diego State, Virginia Tech, UConn, and Florida.  The first 4 on the outside would be Ole Miss, Mississippi St., Memphis, and Rhode Island.  The next 4 after that are Seton Hall, ASU, Illinois, and Virginia Commonwealth.

Some of the possible changes with a few games left are:

  • Rhode Island may have a chance to eke into an at-large spot with a win today over Temple in the A-10 semis.
  • Mississippi St. made a move to get to the second team not making it and a win today would likely get them in, possibly at the expense of SEC foe Florida.
  • Illinois has farther to go, but a win over Ohio State could do it for them.
  • Virginia Tech, UConn, and Florida are done and with wins by teams behind them could be passed.
  • San Diego State with a loss could also get passed.

Stay tuned for more updates.
