Daily Bracketology: Saturday's Field of 65

    
March 8th, 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 Saturday's Movement: First off, I apologize for not getting the usual update in yesterday.  I've been dealing with a little virus that's kept me in bed the last two days. Because there's been two days (and a morning of action that's included Winthrop booking another trip to the Dance, and Georgetown beating Louisville) since my last update, there's probably too many changes and results to note. The important ones, indicated by arrows, include UCLA moving back to a 1 seed, UCONN falling to a 4, UAB up to an 11, and Winthrop of course in the field.
