Bracket Projection: 3/7

I imagine just about every day this week something will happen to shake up the bracket, so these posts might become a daily thing. We shall see. Yesterday three more teams punched their ticket: UNC Wilmington, East Tennessee State, and Iona. I had all of them in already, but I had to change my pick from the Summit League as the South Dakota State Jackrabbits knocked off in-state rival South Dakota; as a result they are now projected in. Four more teams will secure an auto-bid today (although the loser of the WCC Tournament finals will still certainly receive an at-large bid). I also flipped Butler with Florida State and Creighton with Maryland. Here is the full bracket as of today:

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