Bracket Projection: 3/1

We're in crunch time now, where every day things can shift slightly as teams make their final push towards qualifying for the tournament, so I'm attempting to tweak the bracket throughout the week before publishing another full update on Monday. As they stand, Oklahoma State flipped with Iowa State, Maryland flipped with Xavier (who should probably be even lower), Virginia Tech flipped with VCU, and Winthrop replaced UNC Asheville after the Bulldogs were upset by the Campbell Camels in the Big South Tournament. Here is the full bracket as it stands:

1 Villanova North Carolina Kansas Gonzaga
2 Baylor Oregon Kentucky Louisville
3 Florida Butler Duke Arizona
4 Florida St. West Virginia UCLA Cincinnati
5 Purdue Virginia SMU Saint Mary's
6 Iowa St. Notre Dame Creighton Minnesota
7 Wisconsin Maryland Oklahoma St. South Carolina
8 Miami FL Dayton Xavier Virginia Tech
9 Wichita St. Arkansas Michigan VCU
10 USC Seton Hall Northwestern Michigan St.
11 Marquette Illinois St. California Providence
11 Syracuse Kansas St.
12 Nevada UT Arlington UNC Wilmington Middle Tennessee
13 Monmouth Vermont Princeton Valparaiso
14 Bucknell Akron Belmont East Tennessee St.
15 Cal St. Bakersfield Winthrop Florida Gulf Coast South Dakota
16 North Carolina Central New Orleans Texas Southern UC Irvine
16 Mount St. Mary's North Dakota
