First Eight Out: Oklahoma State, Davidson, Nebraska, Alabama, Rhode Island, North Carolina State, Cincinnati, Tennessee

It was a massive week for the SEC, which suddenly has five teams looking very good for an NCAA Tournament bid. Of course there is Kentucky, but heading into the week, no other team in the conference looked too impressive. But Arkansas, LSU, Georgia and Texas A&M all picked up two big conference wins during the week and all are now 4-2 in SEC play. They join the Wildcats in our projected bracket. There is certainly plenty of time for a team like Georgia to slip out of the tournament picture, but squads like Alabama, Tennessee and Ole Miss are still hanging around and hoping to step up if somebody else steps back.
