I'm going to be projecting the Tournament field on a close to daily basis for the rest of the year (and no Saturday's since there's little action Friday). This is a field based on how the tourney looks as of this moment. Note that 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 team that moved up or down based on last night's performance.

 

Note on Today's Movement: A win by USC and WSU's loss to UCLA shakes up the positions of the Pac-10 teams. USC moves up to a 6 seed, directly ahead of WSU who falls down from a 5.  The big winner of the day is UMASS, who by virtue of beating Rhode Island and getting back to .500 in league play, reenters the field replacing NC State who is now the 1st team out.  Belmont moved into a tie w/ Jacksonville in the A-Sun and is my projected winner.
