Bracketology 2/26/19

March is almost here

I missed my Friday Bracketology. I apologize. That shouldn’t happen again. I have four days off this week, which will help me catch up on things. There were some exciting matchups this past week. Two games featured teams that are basically locks to get one of the top two seeds. There is such a huge separation between those eight teams and the rest. Kansas had a chance of moving in on a two seed because of all their top-50 wins. But they got blasted by Texas Tech.

The Red Raiders along with Purdue have been consistently in the top 10 for metrics for a few weeks now. If you want a fourth team, Marquette is another that could sneak in as one of the top two seeds. Houston is there too I guess because they could get into the NCAA Tournament with just one loss. As for number one seeds, Gonzaga, Duke and Virginia are almost locks. There’s a long debate on who the fourth should be.

As always, Deceptive Speed’s Bracketology is part of the Bracket Matrix.
