3/8 Men's Basketball Bracketology Breakdown

Murray State Men's College Basketball

Last Eight In: Temple, Tulsa, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, St. John’s, Indiana, North Carolina State, Cincinnati

First Eight Out: Texas, Xavier, Miami, UCLA, Rhode Island, Old Dominion, Stanford, Pittsburgh

So far four teams have won their spot in the NCAA Tournament. On Saturday Belmont began the madness with an upset win over Murray State. The Racers may be 27-5, but they are on the outside looking in now. Assuming a few spots will be taken away with upsets over the next week, the Racers have very little chance of making the NCAA Tournament. Illinois State could have made the bubble shrink, but they fell to Northern Iowa in the MVC tournament final. The A-Sun representative will be North Florida and Coastal Carolina won the upset filled Big South tournament.
