Same 68 teams as yesterday, but a bit of movement. Michigan and North Carolina are so close that BracketBot almost can’t decide. Neither played yesterday, but fluctuations in how other teams are perceived will change how these teams are perceived. Yesterday it was UNC, but today it’s Michigan for the final #1 slot.

Last Four Byes: TCU, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Clemson
Last Four In: Florida, Temple, Seton Hall, Creighton
First Four Out: NC State, Indiana, Belmont, St Mary’s

Bids by Conference:
ACC/Big XII/Big Ten 8, SEC 7, Big East 5, AAC 4, Pac-12/MWC 2

Full bracket: Louisville has played all four 2 seeds, so they can’t be a 7. They’re bumped down to be the top 8 seed, with Washington filling the vacuum.
