3/15 Men's Basketball Bracketology Breakdown

Connecticut Men's College Basketball

Last Eight In: Temple, Oklahoma State, Boise State, Mississippi, Indiana, BYU, LSU, Cincinnati

First Eight Out: Texas, Miami, UCLA, Tulsa, Rhode Island, Texas A&M, Old Dominion, Iona, Illinois

Besides Georgia State and Georgia Southern slugging it out for Sun Belt supremacy, Connecticut is the only team on Sunday that can play their win into the NCAA Tournament. Everybody else is already a lock. The Huskies will have all of the bubble teams nervous when they play SMU. UConn did beat SMU at home this year, so the bubble should be worried. But that does not mean seeding is not on the line on Selection Sunday. Wisconsin could be playing for a #1 seed when they take on Michigan State and, of course, Kentucky is still playing for perfection.
