12/6 Men's Basketball Bracketology Breakdown

Last Eight In: UNLV, Indiana, Richmond, Colorado, St. Mary’s, San Diego State, Marquette, BYU

First Eight Out: Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Ohio State, Northern Iowa, Memphis, USC, Tulsa, Houston

With losses by Kentucky and Maryland, combined with a nice win over Louisville, Michigan State moves up to the #1 spot in the Top 25 this week. However, when all is said and done, we still think Kentucky, Duke and Kansas will boast better resumes than the Spartans come tournament time. Michigan State is certainly off to a great start though and they already boast resume building wins over Kansas, Boise State, Providence and Louisville; all projected NCAA Tournament teams.
